Biography

Hannah Mills is a two-time world champion sailor and the most successful female sailor in Olympic history. Having won a silver medal in the London 2012 Olympics, she went on to win gold at the 2016 Games in Rio and at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

The Cardiff-born sailor immediately saw success with 470 partner Sasia Clarke when they won gold at the World Championships two years in a row. After losing out on gold to New Zealand in the medal race at London 2012 the duo returned four years later to become Olympic champions at Rio 2016. With her new partner Eilidh McIntyre, Hannah went on to claim further bronze, silver and gold medals at the World Championships the following years before bagging the top prize in Tokyo 2020 - retiring from Olympic sailing on a high.

Beyond her Olympic achievements, Hannah is a passionate advocate for sustainability and environmental conservation. It was whilst travelling the world in the build-up to the Rio 2016 games, seeing the damage done by discarded litter to marine life across countless beaches, marinas and harbours, that her activist instinct awakened. Hannah is now an International Olympic Committee Sustainability Ambassador and has launched the Big Plastic Pledge, which calls on elite athletes to push for change in the way plastic is used in sport.

In her own words, Hannah says that: "Winning or losing can often come down to the tiniest of margins and psychology becomes an integral part of our search for perfection".
