One small rowing club in Surrey has a stunning six athletes in the 2012 GB rowing squad.

Led by World Champion Andy Triggs Hodge, the Molesey Boat Club contingent includes Mo Sbihi, the first Muslim to row for Great Britain.

Triggs Hodge is in the Men's 4 and Sbihi is in the 8, as are James Foad and veteran rower Greg Searle. Molesey's George Nash is selected for the Men's Pair and Tom James is in the Men's 4.

Andy Triggs Hodge is one of six Molesey Boat Club rowers to be selected for Team GB.

East Londoner Mark Hunter, who rowed at the Poplar Club on the tidal Thames is also included in the 48 rowers named today. Mark rows in the Lightweight Men's Double Scull.
