On 1 April 2006, UK Sport assumed full responsibility for all Olympic performance-related support in England, from the identification of talent right the way through to performing at the top level to help improve performance and drive success in the future. In taking on this new responsibility, and remaining focused on a 'no compromise' approach, UK Sport has redefined the terms under which funding and support will be provided. It operates a Pathway to Excellence at three key levels:
- Podium Programme
- Podium Potential Programme
- Talent Programme
The Performance Team based at the Sports Training Village at the University of Bath focusses on the highest level of modern pentathlon in GB. It is here that the cream of modern pentathlon athletes train full time in their quest for medals on the world stage.
