Lets not forget our pretty controversial performance-based funding system. In the last cycle, 275 million was spent predominantly on those sports and athletes likely to earn us the most medals e.g. cycling and rowing, whilst wrestling, basketball and other 'minority' sports battle for the scraps.
So making investments that have a good chance of paying off, I like that as a starting point. The EU could learn a great deal from this.
