Sexy lady athlete alert: Michelle Jenneke

You know how you some athletes are real sexy? Well here’s one.

Michelle Jenneke is her name. She’s an Australian hurdler and here she is performing at this year’s Junior World Championships in the women’s 110m hurdles.

And to make matters even better, she can actually perform. The 19-year-old won gold in the event, and internet gold when this video of her dancing warm-up went viral. The thing had 11 million views when we opportunistically decided to upload it.


So that’s it! Our faith in athletics saved and revitalised. Just in time for the Olympics!

  1. she didn’t win Gold in the final unfortunately. I wish she had (I live just around the corner from her here in Sydney).
    She continues to improve and today (Feb 7, 2015) she set a wind legal personal best over the senior hurdles at 13.04.
    Here’s hoping she cracks the 12s this season as she approaches 22 years old

  2. If she continues to improve it looks like you guys will see her in dancing some big international senior meets. Today’s run brings her to within 0.04 of qualifying for Beijing world champs in August
