Faulds is the only GB shooter going to Beijing with Olympic experience

Olympic gold medallist Richard Faulds leads Britain's five-strong shooting team for the Beijing Games in August.

Faulds, 31, is aiming to replicate his double trap victory of eight years ago in Sydney alongside Steve Scott, 23.

Jon Hammond, 27, will compete in the 50m rifle prone, 50m rifle three positions and air rifle events.

Charlotte Kerwood, 21, who won Commonwealth Games gold in 2002 and 2006, and Elena Little, 35, compete in the shotgun and skeet respectively.

Scott said: "I am chuffed to be taking part in the greatest sporting event in the world, but it hasn't really sunk in yet that I am going to Beijing.

"When I get on the plane, that's when I will get nervous."

Team GB shooting team leader John Leighton-Dyson added: "There are four new Olympians all of whom have qualified against the best in the world and we have high hopes of good results in Beijing.

"Richard has been shooting exceptionally well and he is an excellent medal prospect going in to his fourth Olympics."

Faulds won the World English Clay Sporting Championship in Suffolk last weekend.
