"Budget" refers to funding for sport in four years leading up to the relevant Olympics.

Sports which did not send athletes to Beijing, like handball and volleyball, only received funding from 2006, so their annual cuts are greater than the figures listed above.

Prior to 1 April 2006, governing bodies of sports administered on a home nation basis within the UK were funded by their respective home nation sports councils. This affects badminton, boxing, hockey and table tennis.
