  2. 2. World Class Programme • Winning medals on the international sporting stage is incredibly tough and the margins between success and failure become smaller with each passing year. To ensure that the UK’s most talented athletes have every chance of realising their potential, UK Sport has created the World Class Performance Programme. • The Programme covers all summer Olympic and Paralympic sports, together with the high-performing winter Olympic sports and operates at three distinct levels: • Has 3 Levels: – World Class Talent – World Class Development – World Class Podium Lottery FundedLottery Funded

World Class Talent • Support the identification of athletes who have the potential to progress through the World Class Programme. • Funding provided through the programme will allow sports to identify the athletes with all the right attributes to ensure they can go on to compete effectively on the world stage. • Raise the level of sophistication by which sports approach the identification of new athletes and examine ways in which talent, where appropriate, can be transferred across sports.
