Australian field hockey player, considered by most to be the best in the world. In 1998 at the Commonwealth Games, she made history when she became Australia's highest-ever goal scorer with 110 goals. She is also the record-holder for highest number of international goals and has several other "firsts," among which the first-ever recipient of the International Hockey Federation's Player of the Year Award in 1999. She has played for the Australian HockeyRoos and for KleinZwitzerland in Holland. She holds two World Cup gold medals, two Olympic gold medals and one Commonwealth Games gold medal. She began her hockey career in 1991.

She met Argentinean national player Maximiliano "Max" Caldas in April 1994 at the hockey World Cup in Sydney, and they married in the same city on New Year's Eve, 1998. She fell in love with Carole Thate, captain of the Dutch hockey team, after meeting her at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. In September 2005, the couple married and set up home in Amstelveen, near Amsterdam. Annan and Thate had their first child, a 4.082kg boy named Sam, on 18 May 2007. Their second son, Cooper, was born in October 2008, also in Holland.

Annan is presently the head coach of the Netherlands women's national field hockey team; she led the team to a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.
