Hannah's Career

Hannah has progressed rapidly in the past three season after making her senior international debut as a 13-year old with a 14th place finish in the 3m Springboard at the 2009 European Championships. After her encouraging start, she travelled with the British team to the World Cup in 2010, again impressing as she finished 19th in the same event. In 2011, Hannah won her first individual British Champs medal with 3m bronze, upgraded her position at the Europeans to eighth, then made her World Championship debut in Shanghai, finishing 25th in the 1m Springboard. She secured Great Britain's second quota place for the women's 3m Springboard at London 2012 by holding her nerve in a dive-off at the FINA World Cup in February 2012. After setting a personal best en route to another bronze at the 2012 British Champs, Hannah received her nomination for her first Olympic team.
