Hannah’s first international competition was at age of 12, where she represented GB at the European and World Championships and won the Female Youth European Championships in the double handed 29er class. Hannah then quickly progressed to the single-handed Radial, making her first Senior Olympic class debut at age 19.

For the 2016 Olympic Games, Hannah led a campaign in the mixed Nacra 17 class, taking home Silver at the World Championship and many other international medals ahead of the games. After unfortunately missing out on selection for the Olympic Games, Diamond moved to Ocean Racing.
