Rio 2016 silver medallist Lutalo Muhammad has been named in the Great Britain squad that will compete at next month's Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade.

British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) have announced that a delegation of 163 athletes and staff are set to travel for the event between August 19 and 30.

Muhammad also competed at the 2010 World University Taekwondo Championships in Vigo as well as the 2015 Universiade in Gwangju, but failed to win a medal at both.

The Middlesex University student won bronze at London 2012 Olympic Games in the men's 80 kilogram competition.

He also reached the final at Rio 2016 and came within one second of gold, only for a spinning hook kick from Cheick Sallah Cisse which connected with Muhammad's head seeing the Ivorian snatch victory away from him.

Great Britain will enter athletes in 11 sports - archery, athletics, women’s football, golf, rhythmic gymnastics, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, men’s and women’s water polo and weightlifting. 

The team will be looking to build on their success in Gwangju where they won 11 medals, including three golds, four silvers and four bronzes. 

In the pool, Rio 2016 Olympian Camilla Hattersley will compete in the women’s 800 metres freestyle alongside fellow Scot Cameron Brodie in the men’s butterfly events.

Jay Lelliott will defend his 400m freestyle title from Gwangju.

On the track, the University of East London’s Corrine Humpreys will compete at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in London next month before heading to Taipei to compete in the 100m. 

Britain have entered a women’s football team for the first time since 2013, the same year they won the tournament in Kazan.

Current England players Izzy Christensen, Fran Kirby and Demi Stokes are in the squad.

University of Stirling student and current BUCS Golf Tour champion Gemma Batty will be hoping to win her first medal as she competes in her second Universiade.

Events are scheduled to held in venues in Taipei, Keelung, New Taipei, Taoyuan and Hsinchu.

Around 10,000 athletes from 150 countries are expected to take part at the multi-sport university competition.
