As UK Sport hones the quids towards those sports with "the greatest performance potential" for medals at 2012, women's volleyball and the men's beach volleyball programmes have had all public funding cut. Volleyball has 6 different teams automatically qualified for the Olympics so it's unsurprising they've had to get selective. However, kudos to the women's team who are already actively seeking alternative sponsorship and recently undertook a cycle ride to raise a quarter of a million pounds. Awesome if the cut acts as a medal inspiring spur.
