Olympic hopeful spent lockdown training 'in a makeshift pool'

At just 17 years old, Evie Davis has already represented Team GB at the European Swimming Championships and set a British swimming record.

But when pools closed during the pandemic, the teenager from Bromley, south London, found herself having to train in a makeshift paddling pool.

Her next challenge is the European Junior Championship in Rome this week, but she also hopes to make it to the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
