Is prioritisation of funding in elite sport effective? : an analysis of the investment strategies in 16 countries / Veerle De Bosscher, Simon Shibli, Andreas Ch. Weber

Bosscher, Veerle de | Shibli, Simon | Weber, Andreas Ch.

This paper explores the extent to which nations prioritise elite sport funding; whether such nations are more successful than those whose funding is more diversified; and, if the sports that receive the most funding are also the most successful. Data on public expenditure for elite sport programmes (2011/2012) were collected on a sport-specific basis in 16 nations (n = 445 funded sports). Success was measured using top three and top eight places during the Olympic Games and World Championships.
