Lee Jackson and Amanda Lightfoot have been named as Great Britain's biathlon entrants for the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Jackson, 33, will be appearing at his second successive Games, while 26-year-old Lightfoot will be making her debut.
"I'm overwhelmed," said Lightfoot, who will be only the second British female biathlete to compete at a Winter Games.
The two biathletes will enter their respective sprint and individual competitions, with their results determining whether they qualify for the pursuit races.
Jackson, a biathlete for 15 years, said: "I am delighted to have been selected. Having missed out on selection for the Turin Winter Olympics, Vancouver taught me how to deal with the pressure in the build-up to the Games and I feel better prepared now."
Both competitors have an army background, with Coventry-born Lightfoot serving in the Adjutant General's Corps and Stockton-on-Tees' Jackson in 16 Regiment Royal Artillery.
Funding for Britain's biathlon team is under threat due to armed forces cuts, with the British Biathlon Union (BBU) requiring a fresh injection of £50,000 per year.
In November, the BBU briefed its members that under existing financial pressures, the governing body cannot function in its current form beyond the 2013-14 financial year.
Great Britain have competed in the biathlon, which combines cross-country skiing and shooting, at every Winter Games since the sport's introduction in Squaw Valley in 1960.
