Ania represented Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. She competed at the 4×100 metres relay together with Jeanette Kwakye, Montell Douglas and Emily Freeman. In their first round heat they placed second behind Belgium and in front of Brazil and Nigeria. Their time of 43.02 seconds was the fourth time overall out of sixteen participating nations. With this result they qualified for the final in which they did not finish due to a mistake in the baton exchange.[1][2]

Ania attended St Thomas More School, Wood Green [3] and studied biology at Brunel University.[4]
