Intro

Following in the footsteps of Olympic medallists Alan Campbell and brothers Richard and Peter Chambers, Hannah began rowing at Bann Rowing Club, one of the oldest and most successful rowing clubs in the whole of Ireland.

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.

Off the water, Hannah is the proud mum to a feline companion named Marmite. A true advocate for women in sports, Hannah is passionate about educating young women on the often-overlooked importance of a good sports bra.

Hannah also indulges in the therapeutic art of pottery painting, rejuvenating sea swims, and savouring a robust black coffee. 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.
