A former Scarborough swimming coach has been presenting at sports events across the country ahead of her role at the London Olympics.

Hannah Creelman, 26, who was a runner up in the 2008 Miss Scarborough Competition, beat hundreds of applicants to land the job of presenting the aquatic discipline of this summer’s Olympic Games.

In the run up to job Hannah, whose parents live in Cayton, has racked up a wealth of presenting experience throughout 2012.

As well as presenting at the Olympic swimming trails and the Olympic synchronised swimming trials at the Aquatics Centre in London, Hannah travelled to Qatar to present the Youth Olympics in Doha.

She has also presented The Rugby Sevens at Twickenham, the Netball Superleague Showdown in London, and the FA’s Grass Roots football event with Robbie Savage and Sky Sports presenters.

Speaking about the Olympics Hannah, who is a former coach of Scarborough swimming club Kingfishers, said: “I am really excited to be part of such a prestigious event; sport is my passion so I really can’t wait. I have some other exciting projects coming up so I am making the most of the opportunities coming my way.

“The thought of 17,500 people watching the swimming and synchro at a time in the Aquatics Centre hasn’t quite sunk in yet, but a home Olympics really is a once in a lifetime experience!”

Hannah says she is also delighted to have been asked to present the swimming events at the Paralympic Games too.

After presenting at the Diving Championships this weekend Hannah will be returning to Scarborough to help host the Staxtonbury Music festival in July before heading down to London for the Olympics.
