Swimming: End of road for Davies

Click to follow
SHARRON DAVIES yesterday abandoned her final comeback and put international competition behind her for good, still harbouring regrets that she first retired after the Moscow Olympics in 1980.

Davies began her international career at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal when she was 13. She collected two Commonwealth golds at Edmonton in 1978 and a silver in the 400 metres medley at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. After that, she stopped swimming, disenchanted with the vigorous demands of the sport, but she returned to race at the Barcelona Games two years ago.
