Having given up rowing after a number of setbacks and deciding to start a family, Hannah Every-Hall returned to international rowing in 2010. In one of her first major events back on the circuit, Every-Hall won gold in the lightweight double with Alice McNamara at the 2011 World Cup. She went on to place fifth at 2011 World Championships.
She made her Olympic debut in London alongside Bronwen Watson in the women’s lightweight double sculls. The duo qualified for the A Final where they finished fifth as hosts Great Britain claimed gold.
Every-Hall was one of three women to make history at the London Games as they became the first Australian mothers to compete in rowing at an Olympic competition.
