Adidas running lauftutorials mit lisa anna hahner folge 7 athletik
She and her twin sister, Lisa Hahner, were born in 1989. They were inspired to take up long distance running after hearing an interview with musician and amateur runner Joey Kelly when they were seventeen.
Anna Hahner won the Vienna Marathon in 2014 but refused to take part in the European championships. Anna refused because she has set herself a limit of two marathons a year.
Anna competed in the women's marathon event at the 2016 Summer Olympics. She and Lisa controversially crossed the finishing line together at position 81 and 82. They were 15 minutes back from their expected position. They were accused of trying to attract media attention and they did get more coverage than their teammate, Anja Scherl, who finished ahead of them. They said that it was Anna's idea when she realised that with two kilometres to go that she might capture Lisa.
German Athletics Federation director Thomas Kurschilgen said that their aim was just to create attention.
