Meet the GB taekwondo team
The enemy within
The most intriguing selection battle surrounds Craig Brown (far left) and Aaron Cook, two world-class fighters who found themselves competing for the right just to attempt to qualify for the Olympics.

Londoner Brown, 24, has twice won European bronze medals, and represented GB in Sydney in 2004, but 16-year-old Cook was chosen for the qualifying tournaments.

Even though European junior champion Cook booked the Olympic place with bronze in Istanbul, he will have to maintain his form to make sure Brown is not selected to take up the -80kg place in Beijing.
