Ten years after volunteering together at London 2012 in their own backyard, Lina Nielsen and twin sister Laviai were selected to compete at a home Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Laviai unfortunately had to withdraw due to injury.
Both women race over 400m and Lina claimed 400m hurdles gold at the 2021 European Athletics Team Championships with 55.59 last year.
Lina graduated from Queen Mary University London with a degree in chemistry in 2017 before learning to be a yoga teacher in the Indian city of Rishikesh two years later and now gives classes on the app Fiit.
