Catherine Annesley, Philip Cairnduff, Rachel Chambers and Lucia Quinney-Mee will be in serious training for their events between now and next summer, including attending three team building weekends for the whole squad in England.
Other Northern Ireland transplant recipients selected for the UK team are Marie Devine, Catherine Glover, Irene Jeffers, Orla Smyth, David Watt and Andrew Weir.
At the last World Games in Argentina in 2015 the UK team had the highest medal haul of any country but lost out to Hungary as overall winners when the agreed formula of medals to number of athletes was applied. Good luck and best wishes to all from Northern Ireland in their preparations towards helping the British team go one further next summer.
