Michelle Jenneke is the Hurdler who went viral for having one of the best smiles while doing a warm up dance about a decade ago at the Commonwealth games. She basically put "Athletics" or Track and Field babes on the map, in what was an otherwise ignored hotbed of fit bodies. The untapped market of hurdler babes!
Well, at 29 years old, she is still competing, and still getting solid results, just not the results she probably hoped for because she missed out on a Bronze medal at this year's Commonwealth Games by 0.09 of a second.
According to her official statement in the form of an instagram caption she said:
"So close to another PB! 12.68 (-0.2) for 5th in a quality field at Comm Games. Pretty amazing to be consistently in the 12.6’s"
The winner was Defending champion, world champion and world record holder Tobi Amusan won the gold in a Games record time of 12.30 seconds.
She also told Channel 7 after the race. “To back up my run from worlds, go fast with a slight headwind there… so really happy with that performance. It’s just tough when you’re racing a field of that quality. That’s the fastest race there has ever been at the Commonwealth Games.
I think it's fun to see an athlete can be both clickbait, have fun viral moments that are HOT, also bring it in competition ALL these years later!
Michelle Jenneke is Golden to us!
