#9 —LINA STREEPER from Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.

At age 12, Lina’s cousin, Jenny Gladd, introduced her to the sport. Although Lina grew up in Sweden, she moved to Canada in 2007. Now married and living in Fort Nelson BC, Lina states that she’s part of “the famous mushing Dynasty — STREEPER KENNELS. I want to thank my husband Buddy Streeper and father-in-law Terry Streeper for the opportunity to race these incredible animals. Special thanks to all my family and friends for their continued support.”
