Sharron Davies, model, television personality and now in her second life as a swimmer, will need to produce the race of her numerous careers to finish in the first three in the 200m medley (heats at 9.0am, final at 5.0pm) but will provide hope for those who believe there can be a successful comeback no matter where she finishes.

A bronze in the last Commonwealth Games and encouraging form offer hope.
