We wish someone well when they have found a faith that works for them, but it can be painful when the re-direction towards that new pathway permanently removes them from a previous pursuit that brought us so much pleasure and enjoyment.

Anne Hurricane was one of the best female submission wrestlers to ever come out of Belgium. She joins Beatrice Goffin, Nadege, Xana and Puma as members of an elite strike force.

The wrestling world has not seen much of her as of late and when combing online there were many theories as to why. Some ranged from child rearing to becoming religious. I believe both but for now, I’ve decided to go with the one that seemed to have the most source credibility; the religious explanation, but at this point only Anne knows for sure.

One thing we do know for certain is that Anne’s graceful wrestling career is a cause for celebration and appreciation.

Research indicates that she began wrestling at the tender age of 16 and of all people to cut your baby teeth on; competing against the legendary Robin was a tall assignment.

Anne was trained by another legend in Beatrice Goffin and her resume shows a march to greatness rivaled by few. What made her accomplishments even greater was the fact that she was of a smaller size compared to most but used strategy and tactics to prevail.

She wrestled some of our industry’s luminaries in Mutiny, Xana, Nadege, Nadia, Gia Primo, Fatou and others. Her signature wins came over German super star Karine and American Virago legend Amy O.

She competed often at Amazonian Sports, AS Film against the talents of Pinky, Angie, Jana, Sandy, Carina, Puma and German star Susanne to name a few.

Anne Hurricane was special to many worldwide.

Here is what the female wrestling industry leader Femwin had to say about her. “No pictures on the internet can do Anne Hurricane justice! She’s a very sexy woman with an incredible “hard body” and she loves to fight, whether it be wrestling, cat fighting, boxing or kickboxing and she’s got tremendous stamina – anyone in a fight with her had better be prepared to fight to the end! Above all this, she’s got a great attitude and is humble, at least when she’s not fighting! Anne is from Belgium and has trained with Beatrice Goffin, one of the best female wrestlers ever.”

An industry legend Robin of www.lesfemmesfatales.com expands upon our insights and speaks to Ann’s value. “Anne Hurricane is an attractive, sexy and highly trained veteran fighter from Belgium.  Anne is 5’2 and a lean and fit 110 pounds. She is skilled at wrestling, boxing and cat fighting and has had many exciting fights against quality opponents like Nadege, Tracy Thunder, Fatou, and the French Dominatrix Linda.  Anne has her own production company and holds live events from time to time in her native Belgium.  In addition, she has worked for various European wrestling companies such as APL and Athena Productions.”

The respected session wrestling site www.mixedwrestlingpower.com acknowledges her contributions as well. “Anne Hurricane is one of the pre-eminent session wrestlers. She stands just 5’2″ tall (160cm) and weighs 115lbs (52kgs). Her looks are more like a swimsuit model. But beneath her svelte size are a very talented martial artist and wrestler. Many have found themselves completely at her mercy. She has always had a particular love of boxing.”

Well said.

Since the subject of religion came up and Female Competition International tries to educate and take our readers around this beautiful globe, what are the most prominent religions of Belgium and in general how does their society view the pursuit of faith?

First, for those not familiar with this beautiful country, Wikipedia provides us with the foundation.

“Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a federal monarchy in Western Europe. It is a founding member of the European Union and hosts the EU’s headquarters as well as those of several other major international organizations such as NATO. Belgium covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 sq. mi) and has a population of about 11 million people.

Straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe, Belgium is home to two main linguistic groups: the Dutch-speaking, mostly Flemish community, which constitutes about 59% of the population, and the French-speaking, mostly Walloon population and Brussels inhabitants, which comprises 41% of all Belgians. Additionally, there is a small group of German-speakers who are officially recognized.

Belgium’s two largest regions are the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders in the north and the French-speaking southern region of Wallonia. The Brussels-Capital Region, officially bilingual, is a mostly French-speaking enclave within the Flemish Region. A German-speaking Community exists in eastern Wallonia.”

Now, for their reflection on religion.

The knowledgeable group berkleycenter.georgetown.edu enlightens, “Belgian law and society are generally respectful of religious liberty. The country contains an interesting religious diversity: half of its population is Roman Catholic, 32 percent does not identify with a particular religion, nine percent is atheist, and the remaining single-digit minorities are non-Catholic Christians, Muslims, Jews, and Buddhists. Furthermore, the government supports freedom of religion by granting a “recognized status” to seven particular religious communities: Catholicism, Protestantism, Anglicanism, Orthodox Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and secularism in the form of “Non-Religious Philosophical Communities.”

Let’s consider one more source for support. The advanced team www.studylands.com/guide explains, “According to the Belgian Constitution, religious freedom/liberty is guaranteed to all citizens, and although not all religious groups are recognized by the government, the people of Belgium are free to practice any religion of their choosing.

In addition to having freedom of religion, Belgium also has a separation between the Church and State.  Therefore, the State cannot force someone to adhere to a certain religion nor can it ask someone to which religion he or she adheres.”

For those of us who have traveled many winding roads, worn various hats and lived different lives, some not by design or desire, with many windows permanently closed; we fully understand that life is change. If we make a decision to follow another course it certainly doesn’t in any way diminish what we previously have accomplished, especially when it brought joy, satisfaction and entertainment to so many.

If Anne decides to wrestle again, our industry will welcome her back with open arms.

Her place in fully competitive female wrestling history is cemented with eternal praise and spiritual appreciation.
