Sharron Elizabeth Davies, MBE (born 1 November 1962 in Plymouth, Devon) is a successful swimmer from the United Kingdom. Having won two gold medals at the Commonwealth Games and a silver at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, Davies has built a successful second career as television presenter and patron for charities for disabled children and fitness.
Davies was born in Plymouth, Devon. Davies grew up in Plymouth and Plymstock. She attended the independent Kelly College in Tavistock.
Early in her career Sharron was, briefly, linked romantically with Daley Thompson.
Davies then lived with Neil Adams, who had won numerous Olympic and World Championship medals in judo, in a long term relationship until he left her suddenly to marry a hairdresser.
Her first marriage to physical training instructor John Crisp in 1986 ended in divorce in 1991 after five years.
In 1994 she married athlete Derek Redmond, having met at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, and with whom she had two children, Elliott and Grace. They divorced in 2000.
Davies` third and current marriage is to British Airways pilot Tony Kingston. In Autumn 2006, she announced that she was three months pregnant after IVF treatment, having been trying for a baby for four years and suffered two miscarriages. During a Sports Relief event in Devon, she said: “We’re very optimistic and happy but we’re cautious, too, because of what we have been through. Giving birth at 43 doesn’t worry me. I’m in better shape than most women 15 years younger. So many women go through this as they leave it later to have babies.” Sharron gave birth to her third child, a son on 30 January 2007, named him Finley John Kingston-Davies.
In 1993 she was awarded the MBE for her services to swimming. Davies is a current patron of the Disabled Sport England and The Sports Aid Foundation. Davies is also the face of the Swim for Life charity event.
