Olympics pool stars splash out in Bath

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - News -

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.
