OMG!… Sexy Aussie Hurdler Michelle Jenneke Becomes Instant Internet Sensation
Sexy Aussie hurdler Michelle Jenneke became an overnight internet sensation thanks to her unique pre-race warmup routine.
If her goal was to get the blood pumping, it apparently worked (and for Jenneke, too), as the 19-year-old dominated the IAAF World Junior Championship in Barcelona last weekend. Along the way, she became a viral video sensation (videos such as the one you no doubt just played — be honest — are getting clicked as fast as, well, as fast as Michelle Jenneke runs the 100-meter hurdles).
According to Bleacher Report, sports blog With Leather posted raw, live-stream footage of Jenneke’s prerace routine, then went back and edited it with an “overt celebration of Jenneke and her dancing and running presented in gratuitous slow motion, and with an awful song over it.”
Update: The “Oh Yeah” version.
