Winter Olympic and Paralympic Funding Review


Following  the UK Sport Annual Investment process held earlier this month, GB Snowsport has received an uplift in overall funding to the sum of £1,293,000 for the Olympic World Class Programme and £748, 000 for the Paralympic World Class Programme.

The additional funding of 1,293,000 for Ski and Snowboard will be directed to athletes in the new Olympic discipline of Ski Big Air, along with the Half Pipe and Snowboard Cross programmes.

The uplift in Para Ski and Snowboard funding will support the GBS Alpine, Snowboard and Nordic skiing programmes. It reflects GBS’s Para Ski and Snowboard potential ahead of Beijing following the team’s success at the 2019 Para Alpine World Championships, where they picked nine medals across ski and snowboard events, including two golds for Menna Fitzpatrick.
