OUT THE DOOR: The London TELEGRAPH reported UK Sport Chair Sue Campbell and Sport England Chair Richard Lewis "are both stepping down from their posts before the spring." Lewis, "who has cited time constraints due to his other role" as tennis' All England Club CEO, "welcomed the news that the merger was off." Lewis said, "While it was right to explore the most effective and efficient ways of bringing our two organizations closer together, the decision not to merge Sport England and UK Sport is welcome news" (TELEGRAPH, 1/23).
