@katehelencarter @JonathanHaynes I have stood out watching cross country skiing in -16c in Pyeongchang. Can't wait to enjoy -1 ... T-shirt weather!
@SinbadTheSailor Not quite, lottery and direct government grant ...
@EwanMacKenna Think it's way too high (although a couple of million went on curling centre). Hard to see why you would spend that much. No warm weather training, high-tech equipment etc.
@mocycling Fair point. Bobsleigh was in a complete mess until a few months ago - with poor financial decisions and all sorts of other issues (see my piece here:  https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/oct/09/british-bobsleigh-toxic-culture-uk-sport-winter-olympics-2018 ).
Don't disagree with this. But at the same time, questions will be asked about whether it is right to spend £5.6m on curling and £5m on bobsleigh. Norway mixed doubles team, which won bronze, had to sell their kit when they got home to raise funds  https://twitter.com/mattmajendie/status/967397856754544641
