World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) for 2013- 2014
UKA, the national governing body for British athletics, has announced the Olympic and Paralympic athletes that will be supported by the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) for 2013- 2014.
The selection of these athletes is based on their potential to win medals at Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, IAAF World Championships and IPC World Championships.
The WCPP, funded by the National Lottery through UK Sport, is split into two levels. Podium is for athletes with the potential to medal at Rio 2016, while Podium Potential is for athletes developing towards Tokyo 2020.
UKA has selected 22 individual athletes to Olympic Podium funding and 25 individual athletes to Paralympic Podium. The four Olympic and one Paralympic relay teams will also receive support. 44 Olympic and 23 Paralympic athletes have been selected onto Podium Potential.
British Athletics Performance Director Neil Black said:
“Our immediate focus is firmly on medals in 2016, followed by London 2017 when we will host both the IAAF and IPC World Athletics Championships. From there attention shifts to Tokyo 2020. Our WCPP selections absolutely reflect that focus.
“2013 was an excellent year for the British team across both the Olympic and Paralympic programmes. And once again I am confident 2014 will bring further success in what will be another extremely busy indoor and outdoor season.
“The support from the National Lottery via UK Sport enables our athletes to work with the best coaches and support staff and prepare at the best facilities and training camps to ensure they perform to the highest achievable standards.”
