GB synchro pair look to make Rio mark

Not only are British synchronised swimming pair Katie Clark and her partner Olivia Federici on their way to the Rio Olympics - they have both done so after coming out of retirement.

Clark, 22, from Reading and Federici, 26, originally from Plymouth but based in St Albans, are looking to write their own Phoenix from the Flames tale.

After London 2012, the future of the Aldershot-based GB squad was in doubt when UK Sport cut its funding.

But, with the help of Sport England and a lot of determination, the British pair have qualified for Rio, as BBC South Today's Lewis Coombes reports.
