Rhys Davies had a breakthrough 2019 campaign that saw him compete at his first World Para Swimming Championships.
Pembrokeshire County swimmer Davies reached the Men's S14 100m Backstroke final, having set a new world record in the 200m event earlier in the year.
In 2018, he secured an impressive medal haul at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Sheffield, comprising three golds in the MC 100m Backstroke, MC 100m Butterfly and MC 200m Individual Medley, an MC 200m Freestyle silver and bronzes in the MC 100m Freestyle and 100m Breaststroke categories.
Davies has represented Wales and Britain and won medals in his age group at World and European Aquathlons.
Rhys began swimming seriously when he was taking part in triathlons around 2014. His big aim is to win a Paralympic Gold medal. He also works in a local boat building business alongside his swimming and has taken a Marine Engineering course.
