'Sexy' Hurdler Michelle Jenneke Video Goes Viral, Mesmerizes Internet [VIDEO]
A video of Australian junior hurdler Michelle Jenneke's pre-race routine has gone viral, with many remarking online that it was "adorable" and "sexy."
Jenneke, seen in the video below, was running at the 110-meter hurdles event at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona last weekend.
Before the race started, the 19-year-old wore a smile, swayed her hips side to side, bounced around and flicked her finger as a part of her warm-up routine. Her competitors around her also warmed up, although their ranges of motion were much more limited.
When the race commenced, the young Australia blew past other racers and easily won the event with a time of 13.53 seconds.
Afterwards, with the same big smile, she waved to the crowd and congratulated her fellow hurdlers.
Jenneke won't be competing at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, but there is a possibility she could participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, according to bigleadsports.
Her warm-up video, though, has already made her famous on the Internet. It was a top submission on Reddit (with the title "Australia's Michelle Jenneke is one sexy hurdler ") on Thursday and widely circulated on Twitter.
"She definitely looks happy to be there. Infectious," wrote Redditor MrCorrector.
"OMG! She's the new 8th Wonderful of the World.... She's beautiful, nice!!!" stated a vimeo commenter.
"She is freaking adorable. I hope she wins everything ever," wrote a YouTube commenter.
"I'm moving to Australia for the 1/1,000,000 chance that I'll meet Michelle Jenneke at a bar and win her heart," tweeted @TheRealConnorBe.
