Kara Hanlon

Edinburgh University
British Champion in the 100m Breaststroke, Kara made her Commonwealth Games debut at Birmingham 2022, making the finals of both Women's 50m and 100m Breaststroke. She also swam the final of the Women's 4 x 100m Medley Relay, finishing fifth.

Having just missed out on Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018, she made it third time lucky in 2022 and became the first swimmer from the Western Isles to represent Team Scotland. Growing up on the Isle of Lewis, the pool she trained in was just 12.5m, compared to the 25m of a short-course pool and 50m used for long-course.
