Hannah Diamond

Champion Sailor

Hannah Diamond started sailing at 6 years old, having been brought up surrounded by boats and began racing at 9 years old. Her first international competition was at the age of 12 and then Hannah went on to represent Great Britain at World and European Championships at both junior and youth level, twice winning the Female Youth European Championships in the double handed 29er class. Hannah then transitioned into a Laser Radial, a single-handed class where she moved into the Senior Olympic class and qualified for Gold fleet at just 19 years old. During this time, she was also studying Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Exeter where she went on to study for a Masters Degree in Sports Medicine. After graduating from her MSc, Hannah began a full-time campaign for the Rio 2016 Olympics in the Nacra 17 class. This was the first compulsory mixed class in sailing at the Olympic Games and Hannah and her helm went on to win a silver medal at the World Championships and several other international medals.
