Hannah Whelan is a British Gymnast, best known for her performance in the ‘Beijing Olympics’. She asked her mother to begin gymnastic lessons when she was young, and has been training ever since. She has trained with some of the greatest names in British gymnastics, and competed alongside British champions such as Ruby Harold, Claudia Fragapane, and Rebecca Tunney. In her teenage years she began to appear in the competitive British circuit, doing well in ‘British Championships’, and making great contributions to the her club ‘City of Liverpool’. She also began performing on an international scale, and has had several appearances in the ‘American Cup’, ‘World Cup’, and the ‘European Championships’. Whelan was frequently interviewed after such appearances and demonstrated the poise, grace, and bearing of a true champion, rarely dwelling on personal defeats, and praising her teammates no matter what her own personal score was. This overwhelming positivity, combined with her dedication to her crafts, has made her a favorite among her coaches, teammates, and fans. She has also had two appearances in the Olympics. Despite the fact that she did not medal in either of her Olympic appearances, she is still considered one of Britain’s best gymnasts.
