"We will go to Sochi believing in ourselves," said Murdoch.

The 35-year-old, who added: "It's extremely inspiring to be part of such a promising team.

"Having met most of the Team GB athletes in the mix for Sochi, I know every one of us is giving our final preparations everything we have."

Brewster said he was "thrilled" at his selection and would be aiming for a medal during the Games.

"We're a great group of players and if everything lines up during the event then the most important thing is to qualify for the play-offs," Brewster added.
