Why she might be annoying:

    She has a tattoo above her navel.
    She has a pierced navel.
    She is a 'Sex and the City' fan.
    Some have considered her Olympic career a disappointment given she has only one individual gold, with the other two coming in the team pursuit.
    She has been a favorite subject among German tabloids.

Why she might not be annoying:

    She got her tattoo as a dedication to her father who died in 1996. She also brings a picture of him to every one of her competitions.
    She has had quite the number of provocative pictorials.
    She described speedskating as being 'extremely sexy, pure erotic.'
    For this, she has earned the nickname 'Sexi Anni.'
    She has broken the world record in the women's 1500 meter race three times.
    In her final Olympic race, she allowed Germany to advance to the team pursuit finals by making her way to the finish line belly up after stumbling. Germany would go on to win the gold in that event.
