With just three days to go until the first shot is fired at London 2012, Team GB?s shooting team has moved into the Olympic Village, their home for the duration of the Games.

Team leader Phil Scanlan travelled with the team from Bisley shooting ground, and described the sense of excitement.

He said: ?Things really are starting now, and it?s an incredible feeling that it?s finally here and we are all together as a team.

?Now the athletes just can?t wait to get on to the range at Woolwich and get ready for the competition.

?Everyone is fit and healthy and in good spirits, so I?m feeling very confident as we travel towards the capital.?

As is traditional, shooting will award the first gold medal of the Games on Saturday in the women?s 10m air rifle.
