BBC Sport - Meet the synchronised swimmers who swapped retirement for Rio

Swimmers who swapped retirement for Rio

Olympians Katie Clark and Olivia Federici secured Great Britain a surprise place at the Rio Olympics earlier this month having only returned to the sport last year.

The pair - and five other team members - retired following the 2013 Barcelona World Championships, a move which saw UK Sport axe all funding support for the team.

Despite the lack of support British Swimming have confirmed a duet pair will be allowed to compete at the Rio Games where the athletes hope to inspire a new generation of synchronised swimming talent. BBC Sport's Daniel South reports.
