To say Anchaya is a fighter, is an understatement. In 2015, and aged just 15, this determined Paralympic swimmer from Songkhla, in southern Thailand, won the women’s 200m individual medley at the ASEAN Para Games. And that was just one of seven golds in the pool, making her the most successful athlete of the games. She has also set a new record in the Class S9 women’s 100m freestyle in 2017. As though a prediction of things to come, she had previously been named 2013 Female Para Athlete of the Year by the Sports Writers’ Association of Thailand.
