Hywelian Hannah wins Olympic gold medal

What an exciting and successful summer it has been for Hywelian Hannah Mills, whose mum still works at Howell’s. Hannah, who left Howell's in 2006, along with her sailing partner Saskia Clark, won the gold medal in the women's 470 sailing event at the 2016 Rio Olympics.  They held a 20 point lead going into the medal race after winning three times and never finishing below eighth in the 10 races in the first series.  Only a disqualification or technical problem could have denied them and they did not disappoint. Many congratulations, Hannah and Saskia, everyone at Howell’s is extremely proud of you!

Hannah said of her amazing achievement:

"I can't believe it. It has actually been the best feeling ever, we have forgotten all about London. We are so proud to come back after it and we've worked so hard to get the upgrade to gold. Thank you to everyone back home for the support. It is all we have ever dreamed of and we are so happy."
