Hannah Westerman – Gymnast
After first attending the Falcon Spartak Gymnastics Club aged six, Westerman was hooked on the sport. Now 27, she has been competing since the age of 12 and trains between 15 and 17 hours a week.
A visually impaired athlete with learning difficulties, Westerman is a nine-time British rhythmic gymnastic champion and says she was inspired to push herself even harder by the Olympics and Paralympics held in London in 2012.
