Lino made history by becoming the first female in the world to hold the title of EFC flyweight champion, her message to the ladies on International Women’s day was about never holding back, always following your passion and never being afraid.
“If there’s a dream that you have or a goal that you want to achieve, if you put in the time and the determination, you can reach it.” Said Lino
Lino who initially spoke about how what started out as a way to get fit and lose a bit of weight has turned into a professional sporting career for her,
“It was really difficult in the beginning – and with this being a male-dominated sport, there were always doubts about whether a woman could make it.”
