Feedback was received from a further 1 parent and 3 athletes. The BF Senior Athlete Panel was also consulted.

In response to the feedback, changes have been made to the policy as follows:

  1. Improved clarity – for example reiterating that the ARL ranking points refer to the FIE (not BF) ranking points and exclude Satellites.
  2. Restriction/clarification of the situation in which the nomination panel can take into account Junior medals and trajectory to 2028 medal success.

A summary of the main points/questions raised in this consultation can be found here.

The updated policy is available here – the purple highlights show the text updates put out for consultation, the green highlights the changes made as a result of the consultation.

The final Nomination Policy will be subject to agreement with the British Olympic Association and approval by the BF Board.
