Anna Hemmings was told by medical experts she might never race again after suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome but in 2005 she signalled a miraculous return to fitness by regaining her status as the world’s leading marathon canoeist at the Marathon Racing World Championships in Perth, Australia.

She became the first ever British female canoeist to win both European and World titles and participated in the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 where she competed in the 500m singles discipline and then again at Beijing 2008.

In total she won six world championship medals and was awarded an MBE in the 2010 New Year Honours list.
