Britain's Winter Olympics squad
Rhona Martin
Martin will lead a changed line-up in Turin
Great Britain has a 40-strong squad at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Italy with gold medallist Rhona Martin defending her curling title.

Britain won two medals at Salt Lake City in 2002.

Martin is again skip for the women's curling team but she and team-mate Debbie Knox are the only survivors from the triumphant side.

One of Britain's best hopes for a medal is in the women's bobsleigh with Jackie Davies and Nicola Minichiello.

The duo, who won a silver medal at the 2005 World Championships, were named in the bobsleigh team which finalised the squad line-up.

Skier Alain Baxter will also be in Turin attempting to bounce back after he was stripped of the Olympic bronze medal in the men's slalom in 2002 for failing a urine test.

The Winter Olympics are held between 10 and 26 February.
