The four serving members of Team Great Britain are:

Lieutenant Commander Penny Clark RN, a sailor competing in the Laser Radial class. Lieutenant Peter Reed RN, a rower competing in the Men's Four. Captain Alastair Heathcote of the Blues and Royals, a rower competing in the Men's Eight. And Second Lieutenant Robin Bourne-Taylor of the Lifeguards, a rower competing in the Men's Pair.

Their first heats begin tomorrow. MOD has the details.

We wish them and all our athletes good luck.
