BBC Sport - Jo Pavey not surprised by British Athletics funding cut

Pavey not surprised by funding cut

Jo Pavey says she is disappointed but not surprised to miss out on lottery funding, telling the BBC she is "probably too old" to receive it.

The 41-year-old runner has enjoyed one of the most successful years of her athletic career, winning European 10,000m gold and Commonwealth Games 5,000m bronze.

But she was a notable absentee when British Athletics announced its funding list on Monday despite her stated desire to reach the Rio Olympics in 2016.
