All about medals for Team GB apparently.
"Chances of medaling slim to none", "no point wasting[1] UK Sport's money", "participated in 7-8 of 10 qualification events, beaten by the French in 4 of 5 head-to-heads" ...

Give over, Shane Sutton.
Varnish hit a point with you, and you don't want to have anyone who's using their head for anything else than putting a helmet on in your team.
You've thrown them to the wolves, and now you're washing your hands of them because they 'just weren't good enough to outrun the wolves".

This 'make-or-break' attitude is the same throughout Team GB and Team Sky, and it's despicable.
Not much (if at all) better than what Astana did with Kessiakoff.

But hey, they're the saviours of the free world, so that's alright, I guess? :barf
