Before Lina Nielsen sits down to reveal a secret she has kept for her entire athletics career, she has an important rule: this is no sob story. Yes, there have been plenty of tears along the way – and she will shed a few more during the course of our conversation when recounting the disaster that struck at last month’s World Championships – but she is determined not to be downbeat. What has happened does not and will not define her; she does not want people’s sorrow. Nielsen has multiple sclerosis. It has been present for exactly half her life and the whole of her running career, ever since she first experienced symptoms aged 13. More often than not, it lies dormant aside from the type of occasional flare-up that hit her the morning before the biggest race of her life last month, sabotaging her dreams of a world medal. But even when not rearing its head, it is always there; the last thing she thinks of at night and the first in the morning while quickly running through her … [Read more...] about Lina Nielsen exclusive: ‘I have multiple sclerosis – but I still want to rule the athletics track’

Almost as quickly as Claudia Fragapane somersaulted her way onto the gymnastics stage as a precocious, record-breaking 16-year-old did her bubble appear to burst. There were notable moments after her sudden breakthrough in 2014 when she became the first Englishwoman for 84 years to win four gold medals at the same Commonwealth Games, including a couple of world bronze medals and a fourth-place finish on Strictly Come Dancing. Nonetheless, there remained a sense of a talent cruelly robbed of ultimate fulfillment by career-threatening injuries that forced her to miss countless competitions. That feeling will likely endure in spite of winning Commonwealth team gold for England in Birmingham on Saturday night. But after five long years without making an international podium, there was an overwhelming sense of redemption. Aged 24, retirement cannot be too far off, although despite a sense of finality in her tearful waved farewell to the crowd, she suggested this was not yet a firm … [Read more...] about Redemption for Claudia Fragapane with Commonwealth gymnastics team gold
