Misticon Lady Anna Turney in Spiked

Misticon lady Anna Turney was in spiked magazine this month.

As she left the hospital in Japan, the doctor said to Anna Turney “see you in the Paralumpics” and now she’s going to race in Vancouver! Anna Turney broke her back snowboard racing in 2006 and turned to monoski racing for the adrenaline buzz. Anna has won silver and bronze medals in international races this season after only skiing for three years. Best of luck to our newest Misticon Kick Ass Lady at the 2010 Paralympic games in Vancouver.
