Lynn’s love of movement started at a young age. Born in Luxembourg into a family of sport enthusiasts, she grew up to become a competitive gymnast representing the Luxembourgish national team in national and international competitions. It was through gymnastics that Lynn realized her passion for dance and expanded her training beyond gymnastics into ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. Throughout her teenage years, Lynn gained great confidence in her movement, performing principal roles in various classical and contemporary stage performances. At the age of 18 her studies took her to Innsbruck AU, where she continued her in-depth training in ballet and lyrical dance. Despite a packed University schedule, Lynn found time to expand her training beyond the dance studio, exploring various movement arts and adding aerial silks and hand balancing to her curriculum.
Turning a passion into a career...
It was during her time at University that Lynn was introduced to what would become and remains her greatest passion and career, parkour and freerunning. Due to her extensive history in sports and tireless work ethic, Lynn quickly excelled and rose in recognition throughout the freerunning world as one of its leading female practitioners. Lynn's movement style is characterised by her fluid connections of powerful yet graceful moves and a clean execution. Her ambition to become a professional athlete led her to London UK, where she soon joined the world renown freerunning team “Storm Freerun” as their first and to date sole female athlete. In 2015 Lynn signed her first sponsorship deal, allowing her to keep a consistent focus on her training and athletic progress. By the end of 2016 Lynn was awarded “Best Female Freerunner” for her performance at “Red Bull Art of Motion” in Santorini GR and signed with “XDubai” as one of their top action sports athletes. In 2017 Luxembourg's main TV channel, RTL Luxembourg, released a feature documentary on the young freerunner’s success (title: Mind the Gap) in which she gives the audience an insight into her life and the ups and downs of being a professional action sports athlete. In 2019, Lynn was given the great honour of competing in the annual UAE “Government Games”, representing team “F3” led by Dubai Crown Prince His Highness Sheikh Hamdan.
and a setback into a success.
In 2017, Lynn endured an injury to her tibial bone that would take her out the game for most of 2018. While walking the long and arduous road of recovery, Lynn was committed to cross training and preparing her body for a strong comeback. Her situation encouraged her to explore low impact activities such as yoga, calisthenics and free diving and eventually she started working on building back her strength with weightlifting. While having to take a break from competing herself, Lynn continued to stay involved in the community and seized the opportunity to judge and live host major competitions such as the “North American Parkour Championships” and “The AirWipp Challenge”, to name but a couple. In 2018 Lynn released the first ever Parkour Clothing Line for Women and became a strong voice for gender equality within parkour. It was with great joy that Lynn accepted to join the judges panel for the first ever “Aurora Games”, an all-female multi-sport tournament held in Albany NY and led by honorary captains Jackie Joyner Kersee and Nadia Comaneci.
Lynn turned what could have been the end of her career in a character-building opportunity and continuous to be one of the most influential female freerunners worldwide.
