Sayers selected onto WCPP 2013-14

8th November 2013

Goldie Sayers (coach: Mark Roberson) has been included on the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) for 2013-14.

The British javelin record holder has successfully appealed her omission from the WCPP.

Sayers will receive Olympic Podium funding.

“I’m delighted my appeal was successful,” said Sayers. “I was naturally disappointed not to be included first time around but nonetheless I’m even more determined to make 2014 and beyond a success.

“I’m now back on the right path after surgery and back in full training after a successful period of rehab. I am now preparing for the Commonwealth Games and the European Championships next year.”

British Athletics Performance Director Neil Black said: “Goldie presented a very strong case for her inclusion on the World Class Performance Programme.

“The panel reviewed their original decision after being presented with Goldie’s appeal submission and a decision was made to include her on the WCPP for 2013-14.

“Goldie is an excellent competitor and has applied herself brilliantly to her post-operative recovery from injury. British Athletics will provide her with the best treatment and support so she can get back throwing the world class distances we know she is capable of.”
