Former swimming champion and silver medallist Sharron Davies has spoken about how being a first-class mum is more important than her job or sporting glory.
Sharron, who narrowly missed out on a gold medal at the Moscow Olympics 28 years ago and is currently presenting BBC coverage from China said: 'My children mean more to me than any medals. They are my greatest achievement.'
Speaking from her sprawling Cotswolds barn conversion the 45-year-old said her family is now complete.
She shares her home with her children - Elliot, 14 and Grace, ten - both from her second marriage to athlete Derek Raymond - 18-month-old Finlay and husband Tony Kingston.'If I had a miracle conception it would be great, but I'm 46 this year and don't think that's likely.'
Her youngest child was born after she suffered two miscarriages during IVF treatment with her third husband Tony, who works as a pilot for British Airways.
