TEAM GB Chef de Mission Andy Hunt hailed the achievements of Britain’s three women stars after confirming the selection of the 10-strong Olympic team in Sheffield.

Hunt believes Savannah Marshall, Nicola Adams and Natasha Jonas - who all won medals at the World Championships in China last month - can nurture a strong Games legacy of future female participation.

Hunt said: “It’s important moment to have three women representing British boxing at an Olympics for the first time. All of them are world medallists and have real potential to go all the way.”
