UK Sport uses lottery money to support elite British athletes competing at the highest levels of sport, through its the World Class Performance Programme, by funding national sports governing bodies who provide coaching and other support services and by contributing to the living costs and training needs of individual athletes. During the period April 2001 to March 2005, UK Sport awarded GBP 83.5 million to 17 Summer Olympic and 15 Paralympic sports, with over 60 per cent going to five Olympic sports (athletics, rowing, cycling, sailing and swimming) and two Paralympic sports (swimming and athletics). Following on from an NAO report (HCP 182, session 2004-05, Scottish Executive papers 2005/9, ISBN 0102932034) published in January 2005, the Committee's report examines the use of lottery money to support elite athletes competing in Athens in 2004 and Turin in 2006, and on the plans for Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. Findings include that, although Britain's position in the Athens Olympic and Paralympic medal tables was broadly on target, many funded sports did not meet their individual medal targets and 10 sports won no medals at all. In order to make and demonstrate best use of its funding, UK Sport needs clearer goals, more effective ways of assessing progress, and more reliable and accurate performance reporting.
