Anna Hemmings: 09015 22 51 01
Surrey’s 30-year-old, Anna Hemmings is Britain’s leading female marathon canoeist, a six time world champion with no less than nine world and European Championship gold medals to her name. She was told by medical experts she might never race again when she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In 2005 however, she signalled a miraculous return to fitness by regaining her status as the World’s leading marathon canoeist. 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.
