BENDIGO badminton star Glenn Warfe has been named in a five-strong team that will attempt to win Australia’s first Olympic medal in the sport in London.

The Australian Olympic Committee announced yesterday that men’s doubles partners Ross Smith and 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.
