- From the section Disability Sport
British Paralympic medallist Jody Cundy says cycling's governing body, the UCI, should be "embarrassed" after an administrative error cost the sport a guaranteed place at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
The International Paralympic Committee has announced 16 of the maximum of 23 sports for the 2020 Games but Para-cycling has been left out after the the UCI failed to submit the paperwork on time.
Cundy hopes this is a "wake-up call" for the UCI and believes Para-cycling is "stuck in the gutter" compared to the popularity of other sports.
