Maybe.  You own the copyright fully if you are the sole contributor of
the creative input which went into the picture.  If someone else also
contributed, then you might own the copyright in the picture as a
derivative work (extending only to your contributions), or as a work
of joint authorship.  And joint works in the UK are quite different
from joint works in the US.  To grant a license on a UK joint work,
you need the permission of all the joint owners.  (It's also possible
that you don't own the copyright at all in a picture you take, because
you didn't contribute anything copyrightable, but that's unlikely to
be the case in this sort of scenario.

I don't see that joint authorship enters into this at all. I think it's safe to assume that the one holding the camera is the one making the creative decisions about the photos. From the IOC's perspective the presence of a joint owner is marginal.
