Para athletics in numbers: Sophie Hahn

Stats and facts behind Paralympic, world and European multi-medallist 26 Jul 2018 By IPC

British sprinter Sophie Hahn showed just how ready she is for next month’s European Championships when she smashed her own 200m T38 world record at the Anniversary Games last weekend (22 July).

Here are the numbers behind the Berlin-bound Brit.

5 – Hahn’s lucky number: “That was the number of the lane I was in when I broke the world record!”

25.93 – Hahn’s new 200m world record time that she set at the London Stadium this month.

2013 – The year Hahn began competing, after watching and being inspired by the 2012 Paralympic Games.

85 – She may look petite but there’s plenty of power behind the 21-year-old who can front squat 85 kilograms.

16 – The number of major medals so far won by Hahn – who has never finished outside of the top two at a Paralympic Games, World or European Championships. That total includes gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

12.44 – Hahn also holds the 100m T38 world record – a time she set at last year’s World Championships in London (Great Britain).

7 – the number of times Hahn has broken either the 100m or 200m T38 world record. She broke her first world record on her senior international debut at the Lyon 2013 World Championships.

9 – Hahn owns nine pairs of running spikes – which ones will she wear in Berlin we wonder…
