#OWNIT The Nielsen Sisters

July 05 2019

Continuing with the summer of sport, we’ve caught up with not one, but two of our #OWNIT campaign ambassadors on the importance of women’s representation in sport.

This time, Anna Woolhouse interviews Laviai and Lina Nielsen, twin athletics superstars who are gearing up for the 2020 Olympics. Starting out as kit girls in London 2012, the Nielsen sisters were overcome by the atmosphere of the crowds, and they haven't looked back since. They’ve teamed up with adidas for our #OWNIT campaign to showcase some amazing pieces.  

In the below video, Laviai and Lina talk about their journey towards athletics, their career highlights and what it’s like to compete professionally together. They also speak with Anna about the barriers they have broken down and how important it is to be an inspiring role model, not only for women in sport but Arabic athletes too. 

 

Whatever your sport is and no matter what level you’re at, this campaign will help you own it. Click here for more information on #OWNIT and to shop the new summer collection.
