Davies: I'm scared of big fish
09:21, August 05, 2008

British long-distance swimmer David Davies has more than just other swimmers to worry about at the Olympics - he is afraid of fish and his race is in a lake.

While swimsuit manufacturers have poured millions into developing a suit that mimics a fish, Davies likes to stay away from anything with scales and fins.

"If I saw a big fish, I'd be scared," he told WalesOnline (www.walesonline.co.uk) on Sunday.

"They're not human. They don't walk around. They're different," said Davies, who will swim in the 10km open-water event at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park.

It is unclear what types of fish might be lurking in the man-made lake but Davies said he was afraid when he took part in a 10km race in South Africa.

"I was very nervous about it," he said. "I actually said to (my coach): 'I'm getting out after 100m if there are fish in the water that I don't like.'"
