As a junior Lina won many national events and several international tournaments. These included the German Junior Open twice (2002 & 2005), the British Junior Open (2006), and was runner up in the Dutch Junior Open in 2002. She also represented Egypt in the World Junior Team Championship in 2005.

Lina was ranked third in the national swimming national team when she was twelve and second in the national gymnastics team when she was eight. Lina reached a career-high world professionals ranking of World No. 80 in October 2006.
