Anathan "ana" (pronounced ɑːnɑː) Pham is a professional Dota 2 player from Australia.
While initially playing Dota in Australia, ana made the decision to move from his city, Melbourne to Shanghai in December 2015 to continue his pursuit in becoming a professional Dota player, where he joined the CDEC in-house league allowing him to compete against highly-rated Chinese players. The invitation to play in China saw him drop out of his high school, where his mother was half-supportive at first, however with Anathan's brother convincing her, the family later showed full support and still do to this day.
Ana began his professional Dota 2 career by joining Invictus Gaming in March 2016 as a substitute for Ferrari_430. His most notable accomplishment with the team was defeating Newbee in the grand finals of NEA 2016.
Following The International 2016, ana left Invictus Gaming to join a newly rebuilt OG. It was later revealed that his departure from Invictus Gaming was due to a rift with their organisation's management with their contract and other factors involving their results. In November, he won his first ever tournament with OG at Elimination Mode Season 2 and later won his first ever Valve and premier event by beating Ad Finem 3-1 in the grand finals of The Boston Major.
The team's performance continued to stay consistent with additional top 4 performances at Dota Pit League Season 5, StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3, and Dota 2 Asia Championships 2017. Ana would then take his second major at Kiev, and the team was invited for The International 2017. OG's had a rough series of tournaments leading up to the International with early eliminations at The Manila Masters and EPICENTER 2017, however, they did finish fourth at Mars Dota 2 League 2017. During the International, the team failed to make it to the upper bracket, and finished 7 - 8th, falling at the hands of LGD. After the International, ana announced that he would be taking a break from the competitive scene.
- He idolises Gordon Ramsay.
- He is the first Australian to have won a Valve-sponsored event.
