News, information and stories about the Olympic Games.

The Guardian reports that some of Britain's top athletes, swimmers and cyclists are still refusing to sign a sponsorship scheme that has been designed to plug a £50M funding gap.

Seemingly they are concerned that they will sign away their rights to earn money from their own sponsorship deals, ie they feel that they can make more money elsewhere.

All very well, but did they not get to their "elevated" sporting positions by using taxpayers' money?

Isn't it time they gave a little back?

I thought that it was simply the thrill of taking part that mattered!
