Olympian auditions for The Voice UK

BOOST: Tasha Danvers

A RETIRED athlete has allegedly begun trying their hand at becoming a singer after auditioning for the latest series of reality television talent show The Voice.

Two-time Olympian Tasha Danvers, who picked up a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games over the 400m hurdles, retired from track and field after injury ruled her out of contention for last summer’s London 2012 Olympic Games.

However, it is rumoured that the 35-year-old has attempted to embark on a new career path and auditioned for the BBC programme.

A source told The Daily Star: “This is a big deal for Tasha and would give her a major boost to becoming a singing star. She got a bronze in the Olympics but she would love to score gold on The Voice."

The Voice coaches will.i.am, Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue will return to the show, along with hosts by Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby, in mid-March.
