Good luck to Hannah Russell at the British Para-swimming International Meet (BSIM) WPS World Series that starts today and will be a key event for Paralympic selection.

Hannah, a past WSC swimmer, is a British Paralympic swimmer competing in S12 classification events. In 2012, she became British S12 champion in the 100m backstroke and qualified for the  2012 Summer Paralympic Games, where she won a silver in the 400m freestyle and a bronze in the 100m butterfly. In the 2016  Summer Paralympic Games she won the gold medal in the 100m backstroke with the time of 1:06:06 earning her the World Record.

A fabulous article in the BBC today where Hannah speaks about her time away from swimming and how it made her more determined to come back stronger and qualify for the Paralympics this summer.
