The British Olympic Association has today selected a 10-strong team of bobsleigh atheltes who will represent Team GB at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Mica Moore said: “I’m so incredibly proud to be able to represent Great Britain at the highest level. It’s something that as a young athlete I dreamt of and I honestly can’t believe it’s coming true.
“I can’t wait to be part of Team GB in PyeongChang.”
