The Isle of Man has been confirmed as an official 2012 Olympic training venue for road cycling, mountain biking, handball and shooting.

The island will be listed in the 2012 training brochure which will be sent to all the participating nations.

"We're delighted to have been included," Tourism and Leisure Minister Adrian Earnshaw told BBC Isle of Man.

"We're hoping to welcome athletes from a number of different nations to the Isle of Man."

"It's great from a number of angles," said Andy Varnom, head of sport and recreations for the Department of Tourism and Leisure.

"This will benefit the economy, further our international links and hopefully encourage the island's children to participate in sport."
