Ciara Michel: “While I was busy training for my pro team in 1 of the highest levels in Europe, uk_sport was shattering that dream for youngsters in the UK”.
Maria Bertelli: “Not saying these sports dont deserve funding but 3 questions which I think challenge any rationale to funding decisions. 1. Why does women’s waterpolo get £4.5m when they didn’t win a match at L2012? 2. Why does women’s beach volleyball get £400k when didn’t meet targets at L2012? 3. Why does the FA need uk_sport funding?”
Peter Bakare: “I just woke up from a terrible nightmare. I dreamt that UK Sport had cut our funding completely….oh wait.”

Andy Hopper: “Legacy? What legacy? A lot of people’s lives and dreams left devastated. uk_sport have a lot of explaining to do”.
Mark McGivern: “Let’s be honest, I wasn’t expecting a great deal of funding from UKSport, but nothing… that hurts”.
Mark Plotyczer: “its official : no funding for volleyball in Great Britain anymore! Its probably the end of the men and women volleyball national team“!
Nathan French: “EpicFail”
