Other Anne's most memorable sporting achievement was competing in the Athens Paralympic games.

Anne suffers from 'Drop Foot Paralysis', where the muscles of the leg and foot cannot support the front end of the foot, causing it to drag along the ground, severly hampering movement.

She says being an elite athlete has allowed her the opportunity to grow as an individual and has made her realise that anything is possible.
