Great Britain have added a women's four to their line-up for the World Championships, which start later this month.

Rebecca Chin, Karen Bennett, Lucinda Gooderham and Holly Norton will compete together at the event in Aiguebelette, France.

Chin won a silver medal in the discus at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing.

But she was stripped of the medal after she was reclassified during the competition.

It was decided that she no longer fitted into a recognised International Paralympic Committee athletics class. She subsequently switched sports to rowing.
