Nine athletes selected for Rio 2016!

We are so proud that all nine of the athletes, that we represent, who were available for selection for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio, have been selected.
 
The Olympic Games take place between 5 and 21 August. Tom Bosworth will take part in the 20k Race Walk and Jade Lally will compete in the Womens Discus.
 
 
The Paralympic Games are between 29 August and 9 September. Our athletes who will be competing are;
 
Ben Rowlings - T34 Wheelchair Racer, 100 and 800m
Hannah Cockroft - T34 Wheelchair Racer, 100, 400 and 800m
Hannah Russell - S12, 50 and 100m Freestyle, 100m Backstroke
Jordanne Whiley - Wheelchair Tennis, Singles and Doubles (with Lucy Shuker)
Julie Rogers - T42 Sprinter, 100m
Rob Oliver - Paracanoe K1, 200m
Will Bayley - Para Table Tennis, C7 Singles and Team Competition
 
Do spare a thought though for judoka Kelly Edwards who was ruled out of Olympic selection by a concussion injury. The good news is that Kelly is recovering well and will return to competition soon.
 
All the very best to our team going to Rio, we will be cheering you on, every step of the way! #Team17 #TheWinningTeam.
