Rower ready for action
Constantine Louloudis was the last member of Team GB’s 52-strong rowing squad to be confirmed for the Olympics.
The 20-year-old Londoner had struggled for much of the year with a back injury, but is now looking to make his mark on a home Games in the men’s eight.
The Oxford University student won gold at the World Under-23 championships in the men’s pair with George Nash last year, having also helped his crew win the 2011 Boat Race.
He said: “I’m delighted to have been selected after such a long period of doubt.
“I can’t wait to race at the Olympic Games this summer in London.”
GB rowing team leader David Tanner added: “It is good news that Constantine Louloudis is now fully recovered from his injury and as an exciting, young prospect I’m sure he can really add something to our men’s eight.”
