With the tank plunged into darkness, alarms sounding, and wind and waves pounding at her, Olympian swimmer Hannah Miley was forced to face her greatest fear.
The Commonwealth gold medalist is no stranger to water in the pool but the claustrophobia brought on by undertaking Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) was a different matter.
Confined to a small space and struggling for breath it took all the determination that has taken her to the top of her sport to see the 29-year-old through to the end of the challenge.
Driving her to overcome her “huge” fears, however, was the prospect of raising money for an Aberdeen-based still birth charity that is close to her heart.
