Essex hockey player Chloe Rogers under the Olympic spotlight

Tomorrow, 16 of the country's best hockey players will be told they've been selected for Team GB's womens' squad for the London Olympics.

A nervous time for Olympic hopefuls Chloe Rogers from Essex, Anne Panter from Northampton and Hannah Mcleod from Cambridge.

So on the eve of the announcement, what better time to put Great Dunmow's Chloe Rogers under our Olympic spotlight.


Olympic hopeful: Alex Dowsett

The latest in our series profiling our region's Olympic hopefuls looks at someone we named as one to watch when he was a junior back in 2008.

He's overcome haemophilia to become a British Champion in his sport and counts Lance Armstrong and Mark Cavendish among his training partners.

Under the spotlight is Essex cyclist Alex Dowsett.
