Archery recieves £2m London 2012 windfall

Archery has been given an £2-million bonus as part of UK Sport's £65.3m hand out to Olympic sports. Summer Olympic sports are to receive an extra £58.8m up to 2008 and summer Paralympic sports will get £6.5m. It means all Olympic sports other than football and tennis will receive at least £465,000 a year. UK Sport will "review progress" after the 2008 Beijing Olympics before deciding how funds will be allocated in the four years up to 2012. The money is part of the extra £300m that Chancellor Gordon Brown promised British sport in the run-up to London 2012 in his March Budget. Click here for the full story on the GNAS website.
