Hahn claimed her first major medals in 2013 at the World Championships in Lyon where she won T38 100m gold and 200m silver. At the European Championships in Swansea a year later Hahn claimed a trio of silver medals in the T38 100m, 200m and the T35-38 4x100m relay.

Her sprinting success continued in 2015 with two gold medals and a silver medal at the World Championships in Doha - a feat she repeated at the Grosseto 2016 European Championships eight months later.

At her first Paralympic Games at Rio 2016, Hahn won gold in the T38 100m and T35-38 4x100m silver. A year later in front of a home crowd at the London 2017 World Championships Hahn struck double sprint gold - with two world records to boot.

2018 saw Hahn add to her gold medal tally with a T38 100m win at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, while closer to home at the Berlin European Championships she claimed two more individual sprint titles as well as relay gold.

Hahn repeated her London 2017 success at the Dubai 2019 World Championships, retaining her T38 100m and 200m titles in record-breaking time.

At the 2021 European Championships, Hahn won gold in the women’s 100m T38 and claimed sliver in the 4x100m Relay.

Tokyo 2020 brought further success as Hahn safely retained her Paralympic sprint title after equalling her word record mark of 12.38 in the heats.
