UK Sport funding: N/A
2012 performance: 0 medals
The story since: Two words: funding cut. Synchronised swimming was one of four sports that UK Sport pulled the plug on. It deemed the sport’s medal potential to be slim following the retirement of several leading lights. In those circumstances, Katie Clark and Olivia Federici earning a qualifying berth in the duet free team must be deemed a success.
Gold medal hopes:Very slim. The British Olympic Association have still to make a decision on whether they will send Clark and Federici.
Star in the making: Not in the sense of winning a medal, but Brits love a good underdog story and Clark and Federici certainly are.
Our prediction: 0 medals
