Injuries Anna is currently struggling with a back-injury caused by her posture on the bike. She is still able to race but must be careful not to injure her back further.
Other Anna began competitive cycling when she was eleven.

Anna's sister, Kerrie Meares, is also an elite cyclist who rides for Australia. The sisters train together and push each other to do better. There have been occasions where they have had to race each other, but no matter which sister wins, they are always happy.

She won the 2002 Multiplex Emerging Sportswomen Award and the 2001 Australian Junior Women's Track Cyclist of the Year Award.
