Hana Strause got her start in gymnastics at the age of four in a gymnastics summer camp. One of her current coaches, Oksana Bystrova, saw her at the camp and invited her to join a pre-development team. Hana began competing in the fall of 2012 as a level 4 and had a great first season of gymnastics. Hana ended her season at the NorCal South State Championships with wins on vault, bars, beam, and all around and a second place finish on floor. Due to the USAG skill/level change, Hana competed another season of level 4 during the 2013 season. During her 2013 season, Hana finished first or second all around at all her meets and swept all four event titles and the all around at the NorCal State Championships.

After testing out of level 5 in 2014, Hana began competing level 7 in 2015. Hana had a solid level 7 season and finished first on vault and third on beam and floor at the NorCal State Championships. From state, Hana moved on to the Region 1 Championships where she won the beam title. As a level 8 in 2016, Hana took second on beam and third on bars and floor at the NorCal State Championships. At regionals, Hana took first on floor.

Hana competed her first season of level 9 in 2017 and opened up her season at Gymnastics In Paradise where she won the vault, beam, and all around titles. Hana finished her season at regionals where she won the vault and floor titles and finished second all around. Although Hana qualified to the Western Championships, Hana did not compete. Hana competed a second season of level 9 in 2018. Hana had a fantastic season and came home with the NorCal state vault, bars, beam, and all around titles. At regionals, Hana had her best meet of her season and won the vault, bars, beam, and all around titles with a huge 38.725. From regionals, Hana qualified to the Western Championships where she had another great meet and took home the bars, beam, and all around titles as well as a second place finish on vault.

Hana began her 2019 season as a level 10 at the Lady Luck Invitational where she won the beam title. Throughout the season, Hana continued to improve but unfortunately was not able to complete her season. Hana's last meet of the season was at the Delta Classic where she won the beam and floor titles.

Competing her second season of level 10 in 2020, Hana kicked off her season at Gymnastics in Paradise. Here, Hana competed on vault, beam, and floor and earned third on vault and second on beam and floor. Hana competed her first meet competing all four events in February at the Long Beach Open where she finished fourth on beam and ninth all around.
