Meet the lovely and talented Annika Nadine Hustler. Annika is a Marine Corps veteran who lost most of her right leg from cancer. Annika didn’t complain or whine, and decided she was going to live life to the fullest. She did so at the Los Angeles Lakers game Monday.
Annika Nadine Hutsler may have been attending her first basketball game at Crypto.com Arena on Monday, but she made sure to get off on the right foot with Lakers faithful.
Hutsler, a United States Marine Corps veteran who lost her leg in a battle with cancer, found herself on the jumbotron and made the most of her opportunity.
This was the moment Annika became an American icon.
She downed a beer from her prosthetic leg to raucous cheers from the crowd, as shown in a video posted to Twitter by Associated Press reporter Greg Beacham.
“Needless to say, she was named the fan of the game,” Beacham added.
After that fabulous chug, Annika should never have to pay for a beer for the rest of her life.
