Alan Campbell will become the first Northern Ireland competitor at four Olympics after he was selected for Team GB for this summer’s Games in Rio.

Campbell has been chosen along with brothers Peter and Richard Chambers.

The Coleraine rowers all claimed medals in London four years ago. Peter Chambers has been selected for the men’s lightweight four for Rio while Richard partners Will Fletchers in the Lightweight Double Scull.

Meanwhile, Hillsborough’s Clare Abbott has been named in the Ireland Eventing Team for the Olympics.
