Sharron Davies has tasted Commonwealth success
Born in 1962 in Plymouth, Sharron became the youngest member of the 1976 Olympic team at the age 13.

She won a silver medal at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow and also took part in the 1992 Olympics at Barcelona.

She won four medals including two golds in her first Commonwealth Games in Canada at the age of 15.

She was British champion 30 times, holds five World Master records and broke over 200 British records.

After retiring from swimming, Sharron moved into the world of television, radio and public relations.

In August 1995 she published 'Pregnant & Fit' and she was an Olympic Games swimming commentator in Atlanta in 1996.

She made her debut in 1996 on the television programme Gladiators as "Amazon" and she also presented C4's Big Breakfast.

Sharron is involved with various charities including Sport for the Disabled, the Special Olympics and the World Wildlife Foundation.
