Meet Anna

Luxová has been a consistent presence on the global Paralympic stage, having participated in three Paralympic Games in 2012, 2016 and 2020. Her journey has been far from easy, overcoming a significant obstacle at a young age when she underwent surgery on her Achilles tendon at 17.

Despite this setback, Luxová bounced back with commendable resolve, earning her first international accolade at Tokyo 2020. Here, she claimed a well-deserved bronze medal in the women’s shot put event. This accomplishment, her first at an international level, is a testament to her unwavering determination and prowess in her sport.

At just 24 years old, Luxová’s budding career is an embodiment of resilience and dedication, demonstrating that challenges can be overcome and dreams can be achieved with perseverance and a strong spirit.
