Australian team named to Olympics
The Australian Olympic Committee announced yesterday that men's doubles partners Ross Smith and Glenn Warfe, women's doubles partners Leanne Choo and Renuga Veeran, and women's singles player Victoria Na would take to the courts at London's Wembley Arena.
The team came through a long qualification process, needing to push themselves up the rankings in a bid to book their spot on the team. Beijing Olympians Smith and Warfe will compete at a second successive Games after losing their opening round clash in 2008. ''The two of us are really happy to have made the Games in London,'' said Smith.
''The past 12 months have been our most successful so far in our careers and we are definitely looking to progress further again on the Olympic stage.''
