Hannah’s journey took her to Princeton University, where she not only excelled academically but also continued rowing at the highest level, becoming two-time Ivy League Champion in the Varsity Eight, as well as captain of Princeton Women’s crew.“She also became a two-time silver medallist at U23 World Championships. Her final years at university were disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, which opened up an opportunity for Hannah to return to the UK and earn a spot on the British Rowing Team at the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

"In 2023, Hannah became World Champion in the women’s quad.

"Her favourite quote, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard,” epitomises her relentless work ethic and serves as a mantra that she takes out on the water with her everyday.”
