Hannah has worked hard this year to qualify for the English championships and the British championships which took place in May. Hannah had worked so hard to qualify that I personally hadn’t given thought to her winning, but that is what she did. Collecting silver over all at the English then Gold overall at the British which is the most prestigious competition of the year.

Finishing the competition off with claiming 3 more gold’s in the individuals on the Sunday and 1 silver.
