Georgia Davies has competed at every level of swimming including two Olympic Games and three FINA World Championships.

The 2018 Commonwealth Games were a third time representing Team Wales and Davies returned from Australia a double bronze medallist. She finished third in the Women's 50m Backstroke and completed the backstroke leg of the Women's 4x100m Medley Relay to help Wales to another third place finish.

She claimed a quartet of medals at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, two gold, a silver and a bronze.

Davies impressed at the 2017 British Swimming Championships as she won two gold in the 50m and 100m Backstroke and lowered her personal best on her way to securing her position on the World Championship team. In Budapest, she reached the final of the 50m Backstroke.

It was a tenth place finish for Davies in the Women's 100m Backstroke after she reached the semi-finals of the Olympic Games in Brazil.  Georgia was also part of the British quartet that finished seventh in the final of the Women's 4x100m Medley Relay.  She set a new personal best on her 100m Backstroke leg of the relay.

Georgia featured in both gold medal-winning women's and mixed 4x100m Medley relay quartets at the UK held LEN European Aquatics Championships.  She also secured individual bronze in the Women's 50m Backstroke.

At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, she went even better and won gold in the 50m and silver in the 100m Backstroke in a medal-laden year.

The London-born sprinter claimed 50m silver and bronze medals in the 100m and 4x100m Medley relay on her European Championship debut in Berlin later that year.

Georgia Davies made her senior breakthrough as part of the Wales team at the 2010 Commonwealth Games where she landed 50m Backstroke bronze and then finished 15th in the 100m discipline at London 2012.
