10:16pm Thursday 21st June 2012 in London Olympics 2012 - Latest News
HANDBALL star Holly Lam-Moores has been included in the GB squad for the London Olympics.
The 21-year-old, who picked up her kit at Loughborough University yesterday, admitted she felt “overwhelmed” when she received confirmation of her place.
The former Haslingden Handball Club member added: “One of the main feelings was relief that your name was there.
“It is going to be fantastic to be part of an Olympic Games. Hopefully we can do the opening ceremony as well but we have a game the next day so if it is not the right preparation, then we will have to miss it.
“We are so focused on performing in those games.”
It will be the first time a women’s handball team as represented Team GB.
The group will begin final preparations with a training camp in Hungary later this month, later moving on to the Olympic Village in the week before the games start.
