In 2007 she has been crowned Double National Champion in the women’s K1 (singles) and women’s K2 (doubles) events, Women’s K1 World champion and Current European Champion (crowned in 2006, event held every 2 years). Anna is often dubbed canoeing’s Paula Radcliffe.

Despite only running five competitive races before the final since her suspension for missing out of competition drugs tests she managed to take the individual 400m and secure the only gold medal for Great Britain at the Championships. She also took bronze in the 400m relay.
