Stoney fears for Team GB future

Published Add your comment

Great Britain skipper Casey Stoney fears the men in suits will wreck any attempt to repeat their thrilling Olympic experience.

The disappointed etched across Stoney's face as she made her way out of the City of Coventry Stadium on Friday night told its own story. Stoney's regret, however, went beyond a couple of clear penalty shouts that were not given and more towards whether Team GB's women can recreate their performances as a unit in the future.

The challenge, as with most Olympic sports, is to keep it, as cycling and rowing have done but shooting, for instance, cannot. The problem, as ever, is politics and Stoney said: "The women's game is the perfect fit for the Olympics. If you can't see that from this Olympics, you will never see it."
