Michelle Jenneke pictures

Michelle Jenneke is an Australian hurdler who became famous for her sexy dance at the start of the race. The brunette athlete wiggled her hips and shook her arms while waiting in the line up at a race in Barcelona.

The video of Michelle became an internet sensation as it was shared around the world. She was named as the sexiest athlete taking part at the London 2012 Olympics. 

The 19-year-old's warm-up routine had nearly 133,000 views just a day after being uploaded to YouTube yesterday, Twitter users labelling her 'The Hottest Hurdler Ever'. Read a detailed description of the dance here.

Many users pointed out that Michelle would not have been noticed at the race - which she went on to win - if it hadn't been for her warm-up dance. 

Some even suggested it was insulting to her compettitors that she was dancing before the race and not taking it seriously. Others suggested it was for publicity in the runup to the London 2012 Olympics.

Michelle hasn't said publicly why she did the dance. Maybe it was just a spur of the moment thing. However, she's now sure to have all the world's attention on her when she competes in the London Olympics.

Nicknamed 'Shelly' by friends, Michelle was born in New South Wales, Australia, where she attended The Hills Grammar School and trained from the age of nine at the Cherrybrook Athletics Club and holds several of the club's girls hurdling records, according to Wikipedia.
