Hockey ace Moore selected for Olympics
3:05pm Wednesday 27th June 2012 in General Sport
WINCHESTER hockey star Rob Moore has been selected to represent Team GB at this summer's Olympic Games.
The 31-year-old is a stalwart of the British and English squads and, as expected, has now had his place at London 2012 rubber stamped.
The Surbiton player is joined in the 16-man squad by Portsmouth's Richard Smith in the team.
Team GB Chef de Mission Andy Hunt said: "I’m delighted to welcome such a talented and experienced group of men’s hockey players to Team GB for the London 2012 Olympics.
"The consistent progress that the squad has achieved since the last Olympic Games is really impressive and they now have a fantastic opportunity to contend for a medal at the Riverbank Arena this summer."
