Michelle Jenneke Dance Video, Photos: 'Hottest Hurdler Ever'
Australian Hurdler Michelle Jenneke Dances Her Way to Web Stardom
19-year-old Michelle Jenneke is Australia's (and the internet's) hottest track-and-field athlete at the moment. Lolo Jones has some competition, it would seem. It all happened so fast, and all because of a pre-race warmup video.
The Michelle Jenneke video below is a remix of her pre-run warmup, and was shot at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona. Michelle Jenneke started stretching, and then dancing. The commentators remarked that she seemed to be having fun: that's what tips this video over the edge. Jenneke seems to be having the time of her life.
Indeed, she's living the dream, repping her country as an elite athlete: Michelle Jenneke won a Silver Medal in the 100m hurdles in the 2010 Youth Olympics (she was described as "one of the most bubbly athletes" on the Aussie team, which she's been honing over the past two years).
Jenneke went on to win the heat, by the way.
Will Michelle Jenneke be at the 2012 Olympics?
Sorry, lads. Michelle Jenneke will not be running at the Summer Games in London. Maybe you'll get to see her at Rio 2016. How long before Australia's own media catches on the Michelle Jenneke craze? To be fair, this story really tipped early on July 19, so it's still the middle of the night for them.
