What a shame for Annaya! When you think of all the able-bodied underachievers in all sports everywhere, it is too sad for words when one who wants to play so badly is let down by her own body! She sounds like one who will be successful in life even though her sports career was taken away. Hope her sister hangs in there as well. Just like many another player, she is only one major injury away from being a very important player indeed.
