In 2006 Anna broke her back snowboard racing, pushing herself at what she loved best. Determined not to be defeated, Anna decided to become a Paralympic Ski Racer.
After 3 years training, Anna came 6th in the 2010 Vancouver Paralympics. She now aims to win a gold medal in the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games.
This is your chance to sponsor an athlete who brings ambition, energy and determination to everything she does.
Anna currently funds her own training and competition costs.
I compete in the same disciplines as Olympic ski racers.
On the same runs, and the same courses.
I do it without the use of my legs.
For me, gold at the Winter Paralympics 2014 would be a huge personal success, and for all of us another decisive victory over adversity.
Think positive and great things happen.
MacuShield is a food supplement which contains three key nutrients required for optimum vision and maintenance of eye health.
Collectively, these nutrients are powerful antioxidants, as well as natural light filters (i.e. ‘blue’ light).
The resulting effect on vision can be likened to that of wearing sunglasses, i.e. a greater quality of vision under glare conditions, and enhanced protection of the retina against harmful light.
