Hannah Miley

Date Of Birth: 08 August 1989
Place Of Birth: Swindon
Current Coach: Patrick Miley
Back A Rising Star: Hannah Miley

HANNAH MILEY has almost 50 medals from all competitions so far in her career and has long been the darling of Scottish swimming ever since she became Commonwealth Champion in 2010. Now she's one of the more seasoned members of the squad going to the Gold Coast in 2018, and her influence outside of the pool more than matches her ability in the pool as a talented all-round swimmer.

Her other achievements include winning Silver in the 400m Individual Medley event at the World Championships in 2011, and at the most recent meet in 2017 she made the final once again in the 400m Individual Medley. At her home Commonwealth Games in 2014 she narrowly missed out on a medal in the 400m Individual Medley, finishing fourth. And in the London 2012 Olympics she was similarly unlucky but swam brilliantly to the finals of the 200m and 400m Individual Medley. She was part of the relay squad that finished fifth in the 4x200m Freestyle final.

Elsewhere, at the 2016 European Championships in Budapest, Hannah came home with a Silver and a Bronze. She also still holds the British record in the 400m Individual Medley.

For her golden efforts in the pool at Delhi 2010, Hannah won the Scottish Sports Person of the Year in 2010.

Hannah's family are her biggest influence; her dad is also her coach. According to Hannah: "I would not be swimming if it were not for him and I would simply not be as good a swimmer if he was not my coach. All of my family are into swimming and at competitions they are there cheering me on during the day and helping me relax with family movie time at night!"

Hannah's key to success is never to give up, know that everything happens for a reason and always look for a positive in everything.

#ILearnedtoSwim with Hannah Miley

"I learned to swim in Aviemore and my first club was Garioch ASC. It was the local club where I lived in Inverurie, and I took part in council lessons in the same pool Garioch trained in and so I joined from there.

"My earliest memory is of going to council lessons at the local pool in Inverurie. I wasn't a fan of the deep end of the pool! When you're little it's quite daunting. So we started our lessons doing widths. There was a shallow end group, mid pool group and the deep end group. I remember I had been "promoted" to the deep end group and I point blank refused! I was so scared of the deep end that I really didn't want to swim in that section. I eventually overcame that fear though."
