Olivia Federici and Katie Clark have been announced as the two synchronised swimmers to represent Great Britain in this summer’s Olympics in Rio.

The pair will compete in the duet event after securing a quota place at the qualification event in Brazil in March.

Both swimmers competed in the team event at London 2012 – where they finished sixth.

The two retired from the discipline after the World Championships in 2013 but returned to the sport last year.
