ParalympicsGB have named the alpine, nordic and snowboard teams who will represent them at the Winter Paralympics Games next month. 

And there are a number of military names on the list. 

Defending Paralympic champion Menna Fitzpatrick and fellow Pyeongchang medallist Millie Knight have been named in the 20-strong Great Britain ski and snowboard team. 

The visually impaired skiers will once again be guided by military athletes – the Royal Navy's Brett Wild teaming up for his second Paralympics with Knight and Gary Smith, from the RAF, will be sharing Fitzpatrick's guiding duties with Katie Guest. 

In the alpine squad, sit skier and RAF musician Shona Brownlee is making her debut at the Beijing Games and she'll be joined by ex-Army teammates Dan Sheen and Alex Slegg. 

In 2018, former Royal Marine Scott Meenagh became the first British athlete to compete for 20 years in Nordic skiing.

He's back again and, this time, he's got fellow military veteran Steve Arnold in the team with him.

In the snowboard events, former soldier Owen Pick will be competing at his second games.
