Olympic Games: Medal Target

Volume 687: debated on Thursday 7 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When consultation took place with the British Olympic Association's director of performance to agree the medal target for the British Olympic team in Beijing 2008; and where such discussions were held. [HL351]

No consultation has taken place with the British Olympic Association's director of performance to agree the medal target for the British Olympic team in Beijing 2008. The target was set by UK Sport, the Government’s agency for elite sport, in 2005, in agreement with DCMS. It will be finalised with the Minister of Sport in spring 2008.

However, UK Sport officials have met the BOA's director of performance a number of times since his appointment in September to discuss high-performance issues.
