Squad for Canoeing; OLYMPICS: CANOEING.
Brabants, Edward McKeever, Liam Heath, Jonathan Schofield, Jessica Walker, Rachel Cawthorn, Angela Hannah and Louisa Sawers will compete in the kayak across six events, with Richard Jefferies racing in the canoe in two events.
Brabants, competing in his fourth Games, will be defending the K1 1000m crown he won in Beijing four years ago.
London-born Brabants also picked up a bronze in the K1 500m event but he became the first Briton to win a gold medal in either the sprint or slalom kayak discipline after leading from start to finish.
Team GB chef de mission Andy Hunt said: "Having a veteran and defending Olympic champion like Tim in the team will be a huge inspiration to everyone involved."
