Northern Ireland misses velodrome cash by 3 minutes

Velodrome

Thanks to mistagregory on Flickr.com

A new velodrome in Northern Ireland may not be built because the application for funding was three minutes late.

Northern Ireland unsuccessfully bid to host some of the events at the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, but this new track would have at least allowed it to accommodate training athletes.

I hope that this can be sorted out – the UK has a woefully inadequate number of velodromes as it is, and we need a new generation of Chris Hoys and Victoria Pendletons. [BBC]
