Davies s hoping to leave all the anger he felt when he lost in Beijing and go into the London Olympics with a positive attitude. “It cost me the gold in Beijing where I was probably the best swimmer but not the best open water swimmer.” “The agony Davies must have felt in the Beijing Olympics must have been indescribable, to race for 100 minutes and then lose out in a few minutes must have been heart breaking but with this game as motivation he is making sure history does not repeat itself,” said Will Higgs the MD of Cascade Plymouth.
Less than a year ago Davies was contemplating quitting swimming. Following his failure to achieve Olympic open water 10km qualification in Israel last May, Davies decided to take an enforced break from the sport. Now the man they call ‘Dai Splash’ is making waves again after booking his place at a third Olympics at the London 2012 Trials earlier this month. He admitted “I was relieved to qualify and quite proud to have made three Olympics, It was the right decision to take a break last year and my only regret was perhaps that I did not do it earlier.” Our source form Cascade Plymouth said “The 2012 Olympics is on the mind of every UK Citizen, It has been heavily advertised. July 2012 will be a big year for the UK as all eyes will be on us. It is only natural that our athletes want to do us proud and bring home the gold for their country. We can only but wish Mr Davies and all the athletes taking part in the 2012 Olympics bring home the gold.”
