In 2001 Anna Meares was awarded the Australian Junior Women's Track Cyclist of the Year. Since then, she has added an enormous array of trophies to her cabinet.
Meares made an astonishing come back from a very bad cycling accident at the World Cup in January 2008 when she broke her neck. But she fought her way back and qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, eventually winning a silver medal in the women's sprint event.
