UK Sport chiefs have rejected funding application appeals by seven sports that hoped for a cash boost ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Archery, badminton, fencing, table tennis, weight lifting, Paralympic sports goalball and wheelchair rugby will now ­receive no financial aid from the lottery-backed funding agency.

All seven sports have one more chance to take the decision to independent arbitration at Sport Resolutions.
