Biography

A talented all-round swimmer, Hannah is well respected amongst the global swimming community for her work ethic and commitment to her goals.

Born in Swindon and moving to Scotland shortly after, Hannah claimed her first major international long course title at the European Championships in 2010 in the 400m individual medley and followed that up with Commonwealth gold in Delhi the same year. 

Since then, Hannah has enjoyed a decade-and-a-half long presence amongst the elite individual medley swimmers of the world. Amassing over 50 medals to date, Hannah is one of the most decorated British swimmers of all time, winning multiple titles at British, European and World level. She also still holds the British record in the 400m Individual Medley which she set at the World Championships in Istanbul in 2012. 

Hannah is a three-time Olympian having represented Team GB at Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 finishing 6th, 5th and 4th respectively. In Rio she lost out on bronze by less than one fifth of a second.

Hannah won bronze at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, her sixth medal at that event. The 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast was her fourth Commonwealth outing as part of Team Scotland where she returned with a silver medal in 400m Individual Medley.  

In 2019, after recovering from ankle surgery which took her out of the water for 6 months, she took a new step in her swimming career when she signed with Rome-based Aqua Centurions, one of eight teams to compete in the newly-formed International Swimming League (ISL) which sees with swimmers from all nations competing against each other in seven locations around the globe. 

Citing her family as her biggest influence on her career, particularly her father Patrick who is also her coach. Hannah has stated that she would not be swimming or enjoy the success she has enjoyed as a swimmer without him as her coach. Hannah's key to success is never to give up, know that everything happens for a reason and to always look for a positive in every situation, something Miley has shared through many inspirational speaking sessions.
