Australian Olympic badminton team named
19:16 AEST Thu Jun 14 2012

A five-strong badminton team will attempt to win Australia's first Olympic medal in the sport in London.

The Australian Olympic Committee announced on Thursday men's doubles partners Ross Smith and Glenn Warfe, women's doubles partners Leanne Choo and Renuga Veeran and women's singles player Victoria Na would take to the courts at London's Wembley Arena.

The team came through a long qualification process, needing to push themselves up the rankings in a bid to book their spot on the team.

Beijing Olympians Smith and Warfe will compete at a second successive Games after losing their opening round clash in 2008.

"The two of us are really happy to have made the Games in London," said Smith.

"The past 12 months have been our most successful so far in our careers and we are definitely looking to progress further again on the Olympic stage."

Australian badminton team: Leanne Choo, Victoria Na, Ross Smith, Renuga Veeran, Glenn Warfe.
