Adam Gemili, who has finished fourth in past world and Olympic finals, has dropped off UK Athletics’ top funding level after a run of poor form.
The 29-year-old was eliminated in the 200m heats at the World Championships in Oregon in July and failed to make the Commonwealth Games final in August.
Gemili has been retained as part of Britain’s 4x100m relay squad.
European 400m champion Matthew Hudson-Smith and 100m star Daryll Neita have been promoted to the top funding level.
Neita who won 100m bronze in both Munich and Birmingham, was the fastest woman to fail to make the World Championship final in Oregon and set a new personal best of 10.90 seconds at the Commonwealth Games.
Gemili was initially picked for the top ‘Olympic podium’ level of UK Athletics’ world class programme funding structure last season, but was removed in December after opting to stay with coach Rana Reider.
The American is being investigated over multiple complaints of sexual misconduct.
Gemili, who cited “bad press” as one of the factors in his poor performance in Oregon, subsequently left Reider’s set-up in August.
Gemili, who is now coached by London-based Italian Marco Airale, has come under pressure for his place in the relay team.
He was part of the quartets that won world gold and silver at London 2017 and Doha 2019 respectively, but 23-year-old Jona Efoloko was preferred in Britain’s bronze-winning foursome for the final in Oregon.
Marathon runner Callum Hawkins, who is making his way back from an ankle injury, has also been left off the top level of funding along with Lynsey Sharp, who had her first child in October 2021 and has not raced since 2019, and long jumpers Abigail Irozuru and Lorraine Ugen.
