With just 11 days until the 2012 Olympic Games get under way in London athletes from all over the world are beginning to pour into the capital and towards the Athletes' Village which will become their home for the duration of the Games.
And for the Team GB Shooting squad it is no different. A selection of the 11 medal hopefuls travelled from Bisley shooting grounds by coach into the Village.
Team leader Phil Scanlan has a team mixed with experience and youth to bring into the Olympics.
He said: "We are all very excited now.
"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 onto the range at Woolwich and get ready for competition.
"Everyone is fit and healthy and in good spirits, so I'm feeling very confident as we travel towards the capital."
Scanlan can call on the experience of world number one Peter Wilson, who set a new world record earlier this year, former Olympic gold medallist Richard Faulds who will participate in his fifth consecutive Olympics and triple Commonwealth Games gold medallist Charlotte Kerwood.
Wilson spoke to British Shooting's web team as he set off to London. He said: "It's a fantastic feeling, you couldn't ask for anything more. It really is a dream come true.
"I'm feeling great, I couldn't be in a better place right now and that's really the feeling amongst the whole team.
On the other side Of the spectrum there is Jennifer McIntosh, 20, and James Huckle, 21, who are the youngest members of the squad and Olympic Games debutants.
With record numbers scheduled to arrive in Heathrow and one group of American athletes getting lost in London for four hours, it's good that the Team GB squad had no such difficulty on their shirt trip to the Village.
