Champion swimmer Hannah Miley has won a gold medal at the European Championships in Hungary.

The Scottish swimmer won the 400m individual medley in just four minutes and 33.09 seconds.

Hannah is only 21, and says she owes her success to her dad - who is also her coach!

And Hannah wasn't the only one celebrating: Team GB's women won silver in the the 4x100m freestyle relay on Monday too.

Hannah said she had to train really hard with her dad before the race.

Hannah said: "I probably put more pressure on myself for London 2012 but I'm here to race and that's what I did.

"Backstroke is the one stroke I've really worked on.

"Some days it's great, some days it's pants and my younger brother Alistair beats me - he's only 15 and he's shorter than me.

"I hope I've done my dad proud."
