Natalie Lin

 

                                                                          
        

Lin is an experienced and successful acrobatic gymnast who has had a strong start to 2016. At the Flanders International Arco Cup (FIAC) she took first place, a massive improvement on her last appearance at FIAC in 2013, with her Senior Women's Pair partner, Hilary Conroy.  They then went on to have an incredibly successful World Championship campaign, finishing 9th at the event held in Putian, China.

She won her third National title in succession in 2015, continuing a strong run of results both on the National and International stage.  Lin has not finished below second at National level since 2010, recording two second place finishes, and winning four titles in the process. Her teamwork with Alexandra Der has been prominent throughout this time, but in 2015, won the senior title with Hilary Conroy.
