Last updated on .From the section Disability Sport
British wheelchair curling has had its funding pulled by UK Sport in the lead-up to the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.
Bobsleigh and curling are among six Winter Olympic sports to receive increased funding, while the investment in skeleton remains unchanged.
However the wheelchair curling team, who won bronze in 2014, were "unable to demonstrate credible medal potential".
UK Sport says its investment in winter sports preparing for the Pyeongchang Games is now more than £31m.
