HANNAH BEHARRY BIO

Born on 5th September 1986 into a household of 5 brothers, Hannah’s future was never going to be typical. Sport was very quickly introduced to her life and Hannah loved playing football, rugby and basketball. This developed into a real passion and Hannah excelled at every sport she tried. Things changed when Hannah started school and learned that being a girl who did sports made her a target for bullying. Eventually, the torment was too much and she gave up.

 

Hannah struggled at school: battling with dyslexia and ADHD as well as self doubt from years of bullying. In 2004, at 16 years old, she found herself in a downward spiral, living a life of crime with no education and facing an unimaginable future. 

Everything changed in 2005, when Hannah stepped into one of London’s most prominent boxing clubs: All Stars. She rediscovered her passion and soon became a serious contender in amateur boxing. By 23 she was a member of the prestigious Haringey Police Boxing Club and went on to become one of the biggest female boxers in the UK with a string of gold medals under her belt. Hannah was instrumental in helping women’s boxing become part of the Olympics and was even chosen to represent Team GB at the in 2012 but was unfortunately injured before she could compete. 

Hannah took control of her life through boxing and has gone on to become a role model for her community. As well as personal training, Hannah also works as an athlete mentor and inspirational speaker all across the UK. She has created a pathway for women in boxing and made history by being one of the first women to box for Great Britain. Now she visits schools promoting boxing for girls. Hannah shows people that no matter where you come from, through hard work and determination, you can excel at whatever you choose.
