My concern about the review is that the range of opinion about the WCP seems to have shrunk. In the initial announcement we were told: "As a first step, the Board expects Alex Newton and her coaches to provide their internal report on the results and lessons of the Programme over the last four years. They and the Board will get independent advice from performance experts - the Board is considering the right people (in consultation with UK Sport) and will announce the names soon. "
It now seems that no independent performance experts are being asked for advice and that Peter King will be the only voice that wasn't directly involved that will have input. I think it would be very useful to get advice from other sources that have an understanding of what a world class fencing programme looks like. I have no doubt that Peter King is an expert but it seems reasonable to assume that he won't have had much contact with the people that produce Olympic fencing medals for other countries. This seems a serious omission to me.
