Since being diagnosed and advised not to do any weight-bearing exercise she took up swimming so she could stay fit. She swam her first mile before the age of six.

Davies is a member of the Delting Dolphins swimming club based in Brae, which claims to be "the most northerly active swimming club in the UK". Davies trains in the afternoons and evenings in a 16.66m pool, which is a third of the length of the Olympic-sized pool in which she won her bronze medal. In June 2016 Davies was notified that she was no longer eligible to perform as a Para-sport swimmer as her impairment was now not serious enough.
