Annetta Lucero Inspires Again with 1 Arm Baton Twirling

August 28th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Videos, Videos: Baton Soloists

Annetta Lucero is one of the truly amazing people on the planet. In March she said goodbye to her grown son as he passed away from a terminal illness. In April Annetta was in a scary car accident when she was unexpectedly hit by a teenage driver. She sustained many traumatic injuries including a sternum fractured into many pieces, punctured lung, damaged ribs, a shoulder injury, and other painful injuries to her wrist, neck, back and knees. She was hospitalized then continued her recovery at home. In June she began rehabilitation working with a physical therapist. Her physician lifted some of her activity restrictions and gave her the go ahead to “participate in any physical activity that does not cause pain to injured areas.”

Here is Annetta on June 21 at a family wedding, performing and presenting her gift to the honored couple.

Annetta Lucero is a baton twirling legend and is well known throughout the twirling community. After winning many national and international championships as a competitor and setting new standards for baton twirling skills, she has continued as a Twirlsport Artist in adulthood. She has envisioned and pursued many creative, exciting endeavors.

This video makes us reflect on excuses like “I’m too tired to practice” or “The floor/lights/temperature/time of day/fill in the blank is not right”. We are grateful for the exceptional way Annetta lives her life and the way she shares it. She offers us the gift of taking a different perspective. There really is no limit to what can be accomplished!

    Annetta is truely inspirational in everything she does, especially the baton twirling world. She has brought this sport a very long way and out into the community in a broader light. She is a role model to all kids and adults and her theory about never giving up is only something few can truely understand. She opens the eyes of many with all that she does following the many tragedies she has been through. A superb human being!
