Scotland's Entry For The Winter Olympics

Brother and sister, John and Sinead Kerr from Scotland have been confirmed as competitors for Britain in next year's Winter Olympics being held in Turin.

They have performed well over the past 18 months, and were told that they will be the only British skaters at next year's games.

John is reported to have said:

"We are obviously delighted, because we have been fighting for this for the last three or four years, and it will be terrific to be performing at the Olympics...We know this is going to be a long struggle and it might be that we have to work hard for 2006, while concentrating on 2010, but we have always regarded this as a project in progress. We just have to keep going, working hard, and hopefully it will all come together."

They finished 12th at the world championships in Moscow last month.
