Paralympic cycling champion Mark Colbourne has lamented the major cuts to the Rio Paralympic Games as "disappointing", as he expressed concern for the impact on the paralympic movement .
Speaking to ITV News, Colbourne, who retired in 2013 after winning a gold and two silvers at London 2012, said: "We're trying to promote the paralympic movement here, we're trying to up-skill and upscale what we do as athletes.
"To go to Rio and not have a 100% of the ticket sales sold out, not have the staff that we had in London, like the Games makers, who almost made the paralympics for us, would be very, very disappointing."
