U.K. Runner Radcliffe Loses Lottery Funding
Published October 16, 2012
NOT MAKING THE CUT: In London, Simon Hart wrote that Olympic Gold Medalists Marlon Devonish and Mark Lewis-Francis, members of the 2004 Athens 4x100 relay team, have also "paid the price for a below-par '12 season." Other notable casualties include '07 world 400m Silver Medalist Nicola Sanders, '08 world indoor 60m Silver Medalist Jeanette Kwakye and '08 world junior 1,500m champion Stephanie Twell. Radcliffe's personal wealth means she is "means-tested out of receiving any personal allowance." Her omission from the program also means that she will no longer have access to free medical support -- "a considerable blow for an athlete who has suffered so many injury and health problems." World indoor champion Yamile Aldama remains on the program after turning 40 in August, while fellow triple jumper Phillips Idowu will continue to be funded despite his "high-profile bust-up" with U.K. Athletics this summer (TELEGRAPH, 10/15).
