Lina Jacques-Sébastien (born 10 April 1985 in Créteil, France) is a French sprint athlete who specializes in the 100 metres and 200 metres.


She finished sixth in the 100 metres at the 2004 World Junior Championships,[1] and also won a bronze medal in the 4 x 100 metres relay.[2] She won the silver medal in the 100 metres at the 2005 European U23 Championships,[3] and in the 200 metres at the 2005 Mediterranean Games.[4] She competed at the 2005 European Indoor Championships and the 2009 European Indoor Championships without reaching the final.[1]

In the 4 x 100 metres relay she finished fourth at the 2005 World Championships.[5] She also competed at the 2008 Olympic Games together with Muriel Hurtis-Houairi, Myriam Soumaré and Carima Louami, but in their first round heat they did not finish and were eliminated due to a mistake with the baton exchange. Jacques-Sebastien later won a silver medal at the 2009 Jeux de la Francophonie.

Her personal best times are 7.35 seconds in the 60 metres (indoor), achieved in February 2008 in Bordeaux; 11.30 seconds in the 100 metres, achieved in June 2008 in Sotteville-lès-Rouen; and 22.59 seconds in the 200 metres, achieved at the 2010 European Championships in Barcelona.[1]
