Britain sets 79 medals Rio 2016 target
Team GB have been set a target of making Rio 2016 their most successful overseas Olympics by winning 48 medals.
UK Sport has invested £350m of public money into elite sport since 2012, and says Britain could win as many as 79 medals.
Britain won 65 medals as the host of London 2012, having won 47 at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
In athletics, Britain’s Eilidh Doyle enhanced her Rio 2016 medal credentials on Friday with a second 400m hurdles Diamond League victory of the season in Monaco.
Doyle, 29, is one of an 80-strong GB athletics team that has been named for Rio - it also includes 42-year-old Jo Pavey, who will become the first British track athlete to compete at five Olympics.
Elsewhere in Monaco, South Africa’s Caster Semenya set an 800m national record to continue her impressive 2016 campaign while Mo Farah finished fifth in the 1500m.
