    So many 4th places in these championships.

    It's good in a way for the Olympic cycle. They now know how much more they have to train.

    I wonder if funding will be lowered after this medal washout. Target was 6-8 medals.

    It's especially disappointing when you consider Mo is giving up the track after this, although as mentioned we have got quite a few 4ths so there's definitely potential there.

    A bit of pruning wouldn't hurt.

    If the funders are consistent then I guess the answer is yes. Many sports have lost funding after failing to deliver.

    It's already been confirmed to stay at the same level up to 2020.

    Strange logic, surely you should put more money into struggling sports.

    Gutted for Mo, deserved to go out with another gold after his career...we're knackered now he's giving up the track.
    Time for some of those 4ths to step up to the plate.

    KatToJo is fit as hell, real shame she seems to bottle it when it matters.

    Girls done really well in the relay, don't think the lads stand much of a chance though.

    Even better when you consider that we beat teams who have athletes who are still reaping the benefits of PEDs.
    3rd fastest of all time...very impressive.
