Nicola Groves, 26, born in Surbiton and lives in Southampton said: “I was unbelievably excited to get the call saying we’d been selected. We were in Alexandra Palace at the time and I was jumping around the atrium so unbelievably excited, over the moon. I’m now slightly daunted at what we have got to do, but I am looking forward to the challenge.
“The team is so strong, there are some amazing people in it and some absolutely lovely characters. I’m really looking forward to them helping me, drawing on their support and encouragement throughout the Games and hopefully I can keep cheering and supporting them in their Games preparations as we go on as well.”
