UK Sport

Working in partnership to lead sport in the UK to world class success


UK Sport is the strategic lead body for high performance sport in the UK.

It invests Exchequer and National Lottery funds in Britain’s best Olympic and Paralympic sports and athletes to maximise their chances of success on the world stage.

For London and beyond, a third stream of private sector funding – Team 2012 – complements this public investment.

Using a ‘No Compromise’ philosophy which targets investment at those most likely to deliver medals at Olympic and Paralympic level, UK Sport works with each sport to provide the best possible support for athletes, providing everything they need from world-class coaches to cutting edge research and innovation, talent identification and Performance Lifestyle support.
