Hannah Mills is the most successful female sailor in Olympic history.
Mills first teamed up with 470 partner Saskia Clark in February 2011 and the pair saw immediate success on the water as a silver medal at the 2011 World Championships was followed by gold at the same event the following year.
At London 2012, Mills and Clark took silver after losing out to Kiwi pair Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie in the medal race, winning one of five sailing medals collected by Team GB at the Games. Four years later at Rio 2016, the duo went one better and became Olympic champions to end the hugely successful partnership on a golden high. Clark retired after the Games, but Mills went on to claim silver at the 2017 470 World Championships with Eilidh McIntyre. The Cardiff-born sailor has been constantly challenging for global success, with bronze in the same event in 2018, before scooping top prize in Enoshima in 2019 and being selected to compete at a third Games for Team GB in Tokyo 2020. And alongside McIntyre, the pair went on to secure a Tokyo 2020 gold in the 470 class, making Mills the most successful female sailor in Olympic history.
