Funding cut fair, says Sotherton

Former Olympic bronze medallist Kelly Sotherton says she has no problem with having her funding cut and she hopes to compete in the heptathlon in 2012. “I’m not angered by the decision, I don’t feel it was unfair,” said Sotherton, who lost her UK Athletics second-tier “podium relay” funding this month. “I had my funding knocked off because my performances in the 400m weren’t good enough.”
