The start of the year 2020
Anna Beck started the new year by spending a few days at the Velodrome in Falun. There she worked on her track skills.
Anna has another training camp left before the World Cup in Canada 30/1 - 2/2.

One out of four selected for the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.
At the end of November 2019, the Swedish Paralympic Committee released the name of four Paralympics who will participate. Anna Beck is one of them! There are nine months left until the Paralympic Games start and the committee hopes that this will increase the motivation for refinement and planning for the first selected ones. This will be the debut for Anna Beck in the Paralympic Games.

From childhood I’ve always loved different kinds of sports.
I’ve been diagnosed since 2004, but I didn’t get my AFOs until 2013. I use my right brace every day. For longer walks or when I walk in bad terrain I use both braces. I can go to the store or other short walks without them, but I always need to plan where I put my feet, otherwise I often trip or lose my balance. With the Allard AFOs I feel more safe and can relax more because I don’t strain or trip when using them. Even though I currently don’t need to wear my AFOs for cycling I realize this may be necessary in the future. For now, I love that my Allard braces allow me to participate in so many more social activities and to be actively involved in all of our family activities without having to worry about tripping or falling.
In 2015, I contacted the paracycling team in Sweden. In 2017, I participated in my first World Cup competition and won a silver and gold medal! Since then I’ve been competing in many races and I’m absolutely loving it! I’ve competed in three World Championships and won multiple medals: 3 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze. But I’m not stopping there! One of my biggest dreams is to represent Sweden in the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020. With a lot of hard work and my Allard AFOs, I hope to achieve my dream!
