Olympics pool stars splash out in Bath
OLYMPIC swimming stars Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn have found a Georgian gem to rent in Bath.
O’Connor scooped six medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and became the first British woman to win an Olympic medal in the 200-metre medley, while Walker-Hebborn represented Britain in the summer Olympics of both 2012 and 2016.
The Team GB aces, left, are training at Bath university, but their new home is a world away from humble student digs.
Just around the corner from the famous tourist spot of The Royal Crescent, pictured right, their two-bedroom flat, rented through Apartment Company, is bursting with original period features.
By London standards, the pair are paying a relatively modest £1,075 a month rent.
