UKA Programmes

The final tier in the performance pathway is managed by British Athletics.

Funded by The National Lottery through UK Sport, British Athletics World Class Programme selection is based upon the potential to win medals at an Olympic or Paralympic Games and is split into two levels: Podium (for athletes with the potential to win medals at Tokyo 2020) and Podium Potential (for athletes developing towards Tokyo 2020 and the Olympics in 2024).
