British Swimming failed in its attempt to challenge UK Sport's decision to withdraw funding from synchronised swimming. The appeal panel applied a test analagous to the judicial review test and decided that UK Sport had not failed to take into account relevant considerations, had not acted irrationally and had not acted in a procedurally unfair way.

Adam Lewis QC acted for UK Sport instructed by Vijay Parbat and Lara Hayward of its legal department, with Andrew Mitchell of Pinsent Mason.
