Sharron’s incredible international career spanned three decades, included numerous major titles and medals, 200 British records, some of which stand to this day (including the 20- year-old 400 IM record), 5 World Masters records and an MBE.
This super collection of framed memorabilia is an official Team GB swimming cap personally signed by Sharron together with a two super colour photos.
They are presented in a stunning gold surround with double mounts and inset plaque, measuring a large and impressive 65cm by 55cm (approx).
Having first swum for Britain at the extraordinary age of 11 she was selected for the 1976 Montreal Olympics and instantly became a household name. At only 14 she confirmed her talents by winning two European Bronze medals – only losing out to the then all conquering East Germans. But it was in 1978 that 15-year-old Sharron stormed to the first of her many successes winning Commonwealth gold medals in both 200 and 400m Individual Medley events.
Her astonishing form continued and in 1980 she took a battling silver at the Moscow Olympics finishing just behind Petra Schneider of East Germany. Ms Schneider has since admitted that her performance was heavily drug enhanced.
Signed as part of a fund raising incentive, only a very few are available and are a great set of memorabilia from a British Olympic legend, Sharon Davies.
