Danni started her sporting career as a short-track speed skater and took up cycling as part of her off-season conditioning.
Danni joined Solihull Cycling Club where it was recommended she should try out track cycling and after attending a couple of DHL sprint schools and some Regional School of Racing sessions, Danni found herself hooked and decided to enter the National Track Championships in 2011 where she became double junior national champion.
This encouraged Danni to apply for a place on the Olympic Development Programme, which she was accepted onto in March 2012. At the UEC Junior European Track Championships in Portugal, Danni won the silver medal in the team sprint with Lucy Garner.
In 2013, Danni became double junior world champion, taking the gold medal in both the 500m time-trial and the sprint, and narrowly missed out in the win in the keirin winning the silver medal.
Danni joined the Olympic Academy Programme in October 2013 and in her debut world cup performance, won bronze in the team sprint with Vicky Williamson.
Khan represented England in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, where she finished sixth in the 500m time-trial and seventh in the individual sprint before making the switch to endurance events in 2016.
The longer format brought success for Khan with medals at the European championships at both senior and under-23 level.
