RTR, are you referrring to the element of individual support that is delivered by the NGB for the athlete. i.e are you complaining that UKA will provide medical cover and physio, overseas training, overseas competition opportunities etc to athletes whoa re on funding, via monies givben for that purpose by UK Sport.
The money given for the WCPP to the NGB is to provide the support services to these athletes. Therefor if there are more of them they get given more money to spend effectively on behalf of these athletes. I now see that you are argueing that athletes who come from overseas to compete for the UK should not be given medical support etc.
Please don't confuse WCPP monies, which are given to support specific athletes, with the NGBs generic budget, which does not relate to these athletes.
You are beyond belief ! I cant see in any regard that you have any reason to say
"you are argueing that athletes who come from overseas to compete for the UK should not be given medical support etc."
As it happens think the exact opposite.
Before I deal with what you think I have not understood I need to grasp what you mean by the term "generic budget".Will you please make clear what you mean by this term.
