Is a handful of gold medals once every four years worth GBP100m?

Likewise, full-time athletes are explored and the tensions that a pre-occupation with elite achievement generates within the sports is also examined. Includes: * why governments invest heavily in elite sport; * the relationship between Government and NGB's * the impact of elite investment on 'sport for all' * the selection of individual sports for priority funding "Elite Sports Development" will be of interest to students, researchers and professionals working in sports development and policy.
