With a sixth place finish on her Olympic debut at Beijing 2008 and fourth places at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and 2009 World Championships, Hannah Miley was in danger of becoming the nearly woman of the British Swimming team.
Hannah Miley Profile
|Date of Birth||8th August 1989|
Miley's first individual long course gold came over 400m Individual Medley at the 2010 European Championships in Budapest. She made light work of adding the Commonwealth title later in 2010 then stormed to silver in the same event at the 2011 World Championships in Shanghai.
After making both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley finals at London 2012, she returned to the international podium in emphatic style with a gold and two silvers at the 2012 European Short Course Championships then a gold and a bronze medal at the 2012 World Short Course Champs.
She won an eighth consecutive British 400m Individual Medley title in 2013 to qualify for her third World Championships in Barcelona where she equalled her London 2012 performance to finish fifth over 400m IM.

In the Pool
Aspiration: To stay injury-free and healthy!
Who has been greatest influence on you: My dad (coach). I would not be swimming if it was not for him. I would simply not be as good a swimmer if he was not my coach.
Out of the Pool
One thing you can’t live without: ‘Team Miley!’ My family are the most important thing to me and we are all into swimming.
Tip for the top: Don’t give up. Encourage. Everything happens for a reason, you can find a positive in everything.
Life after swimming? Not sure. I will keep swimming in my life, maybe coaching or help children in the sport.
Films I love action or comedy films. In Sheffield at the Olympic trials between sessions as a family we would go back to our apartment and watch a film together. It helps me to relax.
Band/Music Not heavy rock, but anything that helps me to focus. I love movie soundtracks because there is always a good range of music. I am more of a film fan than a music fan.
