Rio 2016: Bryony Shaw and Giles Scott 'honoured' to be selected

Bryony Shaw and Giles Scott say they are "honoured" to be selected for the Team GB squad for next year's Rio Olympics.

World champion Scott, who is undefeated in two years, and Shaw are among eight sailors who are the first to be chosen for the British team.

Scott will compete in the Finn class, which was dominated by Sir Ben Ainslie prior to his retirement from Olympic sailing after London 2012, while Shaw competes in windsurfing.

Shaw wants to make up for the "disappointment" of London 2012, where she finished seventh, while Scott is "excited" by the prospect of going for gold.
