How the UK Lottery helped Great Britain win 100 Olympic gold medals

By Kate NorthropGreat Britain has officially secured its 100th gold medal in the Olympics, part of which can be attributed to support from the UK National Lottery. Since 1996, funding from the National Lottery has helped athletes from Team Great Britain take home over 100 gold medals at the Olympics, but what does that funding specifically entail? On Monday, Adam Peaty took Great Britain's 100th gold medal after defending his 100m breaststroke title in Tokyo. That all changed in 1997 when the National Lottery began funding Olympic sports, and within two decades, the country has proven itself as a formidable contender. The money funneled into sport programs pays for squadrons of support teams ready to aid the Olympic athletes.
