"At the London 2012 Olympic Games Team GB - Our Greatest Team - will be the largest single team to represent the nation in any sporting event for over 100 years. Consisting of over 500 athletes and 1,000 support staff, we will be the best prepared, best equipped, best supported and most ambitious team to represent Great Britain and Northern Ireland in over a century!

Team GB will compete in more sports and more disciplines and our mission is to deliver best performance, more medals, from more sports. With the support of the whole of the UK, Our Greatest Team is 60 million strong. Team GB will be the most diverse team: geographically; ethnically and socially. The athletes who compete for Team GB are ordinary men and women with extraordinary talents." [1]
