Throwback Thursday – Miley wins first gold in Turkey in 2009

Hannah Miley has spent more than a decade at the top in swimming, with 36 international medals to her name including six golds.

It has been a decade since the first of those gold medals, across in Turkey at the LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships in 2009.

Recently turned 20, and with a couple of World short course medals to her name, Miley was clearly a talented medley swimmer but still had to prove she could finish on the top step of the podium in a major competition.

In Istanbul, she added a bronze medal to her collection in the 200m individual medley on the opening day of competition.

However, the 400m medley has always been her specialty, and that event on the final day would decide whether it had been a successful competition or not.

In a hugely competitive field that featured the likes of future Olympic gold-medallist Mereia Belmonte and 200m medley silver medallist Francesca Segat, Miley proved the class of the field.

The Scot finished in 4:25.66, nearly two seconds clear of Belmonte in silver, with Hungary’s Zsuzsanna Jakabos clinching bronze ahead of Segat.

Miley has since gone on to repeat the feat at the 2012 European Short Course Championships, and this December, has a chance to bring up a hat-trick of titles ten years after her first.
