Javelin thrower Hollie Arnold, 100m and 200m runner Jamie Carter, discus thrower Kieran Tcherniawsky, wheelchair fencer Justine Moore; and boccia player Jessica Hunter will take part in the Games from August 29.

Boccia player Jessica, 20, from Middlesex, studied at Treloar College in Hampshire, and won gold in the BC3 Pairs at the London 2012 Test Event.

The team were selected to represent Team GB after receiving specialist support from Caudwell Children’s Enable Sports service
