David Davies and Jazmin Carlin named in ‘strongest ever’ Welsh team for Commonwealths

Share this page

Double Olympic medallist David Davies will lead a 16-strong Welsh swimming team to the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in October after the squad was announced today.

The 25-year old will be competing in his third Commonwealth Games having scooped two of Wales’ three medals in Melbourne four years ago with gold in the 1500m freestyle and bronze in the 400m freestyle.

Disability swimmer David Roberts, fresh from four medals at last week’s IPC World Swimming Championships, will also return for this third Commonwealth Games, having scored multi-disability 100m bronze in Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006.

Jazmin Carlin will spearhead the women’s challenge as she view to become the first Welsh woman to win a Commonwealth medal in the pool since Pat Bevan in 1974.

And although nine of the 16 will be making their Commonwealth debuts in Delhi, Swim Wales performance director Martyn Woodroffe is bullish about his team’s chances.

“This is Wales' strongest ever swim team to be fielded at a Commonwealth Games," said Woodroffe.

"As we are able to call on Olympic and Paralympic medallists, we are in a strong position. As well as experienced swimmers, we also have names to note for the future.

"The team is certainly the most professional group of swimmers and staff I have worked with – all of whom are setting extremely high standards and targets."
