Lina Nielsen is a British sprinter, hurdler and yoga instructor on the FitApp. When she was just 17, Lina was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Lina decided to keep her diagnosis a secret whilst competing for 9-years. Just two days before the World Athletics Championship Heats in 2022, Lina relapsed. This prompted her to tell the world about her MS diagnosis.
In this episode, Lina joins Nicole to discuss her journey from first being diagnosed, how it’s impacted her career, the three non-negotiables she sticks by, and why she believes that track and field saved her.
