Hannah Stevenson joined the British Skeleton Talent Squad alongside Philippa Wilkinson and Stefan Squire prior to the start of the 2016 summer season.

Her permanent place in the Talent Squad followed a season as part of the Future Talent group in 2015/16, during which she impressed both on and off ice in the UK and abroad.

Like Philippa and Stefan, Hannah’s pathway into the sport came via the UK Sport Power2Podium programme in 2014. She gained her first on-ice experience the following year and will continue to step up her sliding credentials throughout the current campaign.

Previously a sprinter for Notts Athletics Club, Hannah reached several English Schools 200m finals and won a brace of bronze medals at the BUCS Championships in the 4x100m and 4x200m relays while studying at Sheffield Hallam University.

Hannah made her international debut in November 2017 when she finished fourth in the Europa Cup season opener in Lillehammer. Her second appearance for her country was even more special as she won a bronze medal at the same track as part of a British clean sweep of the podium in Norway.

She raced on two more occasions last term, placing fourth again and then 14th in Winterberg, and has again to been selected to slide on the EC circuit this season.

Hannah in her own words...

  • Nickname: Stevo or H-Dogg
  • Most likely to be spotted: in the gym, being clumsy, buying new trainers or eating out at a restaurant
  • Least likely to be found: on a golf course or reading
  • Me in three: life and soul
  • Heroes: my parents: they have supported me and my brother through every opportunity we have been given. If I can turn out to be half the person they are I would be very happy
  • Random fact: I was born with a white streak of hair
  • If I wasn’t a slider: I’m currently studying for a MSc in Applied Sport and Exercise Science so I’d be keen to do a PhD and become a researcher
