Sharron Davies MBE

One of Britain's greatest ever swimming Olympians


Sharron Davies MBE is one of those athletes who the public absolutely adore and respect. The Olympic speaker is not just known for her incredible swimming performances but also for her copious TV work as a pundit and presenter.

Recognised as one of the most striking figures ever to emerge from the sport of swimming, Sharron won two gold medals at the Commonwealth Games when she was just 15 years old – one for the 200m medley and one for the 400m medley. Two years later she came second at the Olympic Games in Moscow in the 400m medley – missing out on another gold medal to a swimmer who admitted her victory was achieved with the help of performance-enhancing drugs.

The Olympic speaker initially retired from swimming when she was just 18 and went on to forge a career in modelling and as a television personality. Almost 10 years later, Sharron Davies went back into the pool and found herself among the medals again at the Commonwealth Games. This time she won a bronze medal in the 4 x 100m freestyle and a silver in the 4 x 200m freestyle.

Among Sharron’s high-profile TV appearances have been sessions presenting the Big Breakfast show on Channel 4 and being a pundit at six Olympic Games. But she is probably best known for her time on the Gladiators programme where she went under the name of Amazon.
