Hannah always loved swimming and biking but hated running. It wasn’t until the age of 14, encouraged by the bribe of a new bike, that she joined the club in October 2015.
Hannah’s first shot at coaching was under Gordon Crawford’s supervision when he coached the school team. The following 3 years Hannah assisted with the junior squad and began to lead some of the sessions.
In 2018 and as soon as she was old enough, Hannah qualified as a British Triathlon Level 1 coach and now loves to coach both junior and senior club members. She can often be found coaching back to back adult and junior swim sessions on Saturday mornings.
Hannah is always up for a challenge but when it comes to race season she is most likely found shouting what she calls “positive encouragement” at her club-mates when not racing herself. Don’t be fooled by into thinking Hannah’s mild mannered and timid, she is one tough, feisty coach and athlete…….backed up by results such as finishing, 3rd at Scottish Aquathlon Champs 2018, 1st Scottish Cross Champs 2018 (both age group) and 1st Junior female Leeds open sprint 2018 (4th overall female).
