Anna Turney was born in 1979 in Northampton. Anna was a promising snowboarder, until an accident on the slopes of Yamagata in Japan left her paralysed from the waist down.

While recovering in hospital from her spinal injuries, Anna decided to get back into sport after being inspired by the 2006 Winter Paralympics in Torino. The following year she took up monoskiing and in 2007 she was accepted into the British Disabled Ski Team Within a year she made her debut for the British team when she made her GB debut at the NORAM races in Canada. The next year Anna was competing at the highest level and was selected for Great Britain the 2009 IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships in South Korea, finishing fourth in the giant slalom. Amazing brave lady.

In 2010 Anna was part of the Great Britain team that travelled to Vancouver to participate in her first Winter Paralympics. Anna stated in a 2014 interview that she was sent to the Games mainly to build her experience, but managed a sixth place in the slalom when ranked 16th. The next year she was back in the Great Britain team, this time at Sestriere in Italy at the 2011 World Championships. Although failing to finish in the sitting slalom, Anna finished fourth in the giant slalom.

In 2014, she was selected for ParalympicsGB for the Winter Paralympics in Sochi. She failed to finish in the opening downhill on 8 March, falling on a course which Anna described as "pretty tough". She subsequently finished fourth in the super-G, sixth in the slalom, and eighth in the grand slalom.

To say she’s one brave lady wow everything she has been through at such a young age too, I’m looking forward to listening to Anna’s Journey. She is super how amazing to come through the pain she had to endure to achieve her determination and dreams.
