Britain’s Winter Olympics team in Infographics

Great Britain will send a 56-strong team to next month's Winter Olympics after confirming the final athletes on Wednesday.

They will compete in 10 of the 15 sports in Sochi with curling and bobsleigh sending 10 athletes apiece.

The majority of the team were born in England but all 10 curlers are Scottish.

Although most of Britain's top medal contenders are female, there are more men in the team.

They have received very different levels of funding on their path to Russia.

This will be the biggest British Olympic team since the 1988 Games in Calgary.

Although the exact size of all teams is not known, Britain are expected to be one of the 20 largest squads at the Games.
