Dota 2's Ana has achieved the rank of Radiant in Valorant during his extended break from competitive play.
Ana is a two-time International winner with team OG who will be rejoining his squad possibly later this year.
At the time of his tweet, he was Radiant 397 with a Rank Rating of 80.

Dota 2 team Ana has been away from the game’s competitive scene for an entire season after winning The International 2018 and The International 2019 back-to-back. After making history with his team, Anathan ‘Ana’ Pham took some time off and is currently an inactive member of the OG roster. He has been spending his time in Valorant with the player revealing that he has managed to hit the rank of Radiant in Valorant. 

Ana Is Officially “One Of the Worst Radiants” 

Ana posted a tweet of his achievements claiming that he is officially one of the worst Radiants right now. The professional player has been enjoying his time off professional Dota 2 with the next iteration of The International some time away. At the time of his tweet, he was Radiant 397 with a Rank Rating of 80. With an estimated 0.3% of the player base achieving the rank of Radiant, the feat is nothing short of impressive.

Anathan "ana" Pham is an Australian professional Dota 2 player who won the International twice (TI8 and TI9) and is widely regarded as one of the most successful Dota 2 players of all time. He has won over $6 Million USD in prize money. The player is currently on a break from competitive Dota 2 and spends his time playing titles like MapleStory and Valorant.

Other Gaming Personalities Who Play Valorant

Ana is not the only major gaming personality to reach the big leagues in Valorant. Ninja, who is the biggest streamer on Twitch, managed to hit Radiant. He is known for his Fortnite gameplay, but he continued to impress in Valorant and has been a consistently high ranked player in the game.

Other top streamers like Shroud and Summit1G have also tried out the game, but we saw Summit1G move back to Sea of Thieves soon after he got bored of the game. Shroud spends his time across various FPS games, with Apex Legends and Escape from Tarkov being two titles he often revisits. 

Popular streamer and ex-Overwatch League player has also hit the rank of Radiant in Valorant. The Danish superstar achieved the rank of Radiant in solo queue and was the first player in the world to pull off the feat without queuing in a stack. There are countless pros like TenZ who have established their careers within the Valorant community, and the game continues to grow with Riot Games investing heavily into its esports.
