Special Olympics set to launch

British record javelin holder Goldie Sayers has had her lottery funding withdrawn.

The 32-year-old Newmarket-born athlete was left off the list of those athletes to receive funding from UK Athletics World Class Performance Programme, which is funded by the National Lottery through UK Sport.

The 11-times British Champion, who captained the Great Britain team at this European Championships, was also left off the list last year.

It was only as the result of a successful appeal last year that saw her receive the funding.
