Hannah Louise Miley
Hannah Miley (8 August, 1989) is a British individual medley swimmer and ranks among the top echelons of the discipline worldwide.
Hannah’s first experience on the international podium was at the 2005 European Junior Championships in Budapest, where she won a silver medal in the 400m IM. She followed this up later in the year at her first international senior meet with a sixth place finish in the same event at the European Short Course Championships in Trieste. Her encouraging start didn’t immediately materialize into medal placings on the senior competition circuit, as 2006 saw final appearances but no medals at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and the European Championships in Budapest.
After a promising start to 2008 at World Short Course Championships in Manchester – where she picked up a silver medal in the 400m IM and a bronze in the 200m IM – Hannah had a disappointing Olympic Games in Beijing, and failed to pick up a medal at the year-end’s European Short Course Championships with two fourth-placed finishes. An agonizing fourth-placed finish at the 2009 World Championships in Rome – where she missed out on the bronze medal by less than half a second and was just 0.6s behind second place – was followed by a gold medal at the European Short Course Championships in Istanbul, where she won the 400m IM and earned a bronze in the 200m IM. A week later at the Duel in the Pool in Manchester, she broke the European Short Course record as she placed third in the 400m IM.
