Remember the name Michelle Jenneke.
While the Australian hurdler won’t be representing her country in London when the Olympics open next week, there’s a pretty good chance she’ll be hurdling in 2016 when the Games stop in Brazil.
Jenneke’s talent is apparent — watching her run one race tells you all you need to know — but she’ll likely become an international sensation for what she does before she actually starts racing.
The 19-year-old took the Internet by storm this week when a video of her prerace ritual surfaced, popping up on blogs across the globe. Jenneke sure turned a whole lot of heads with her mesmerizing dance moves before running the 100-meter race at the IAAF world junior championships in Barcelona.
See video of the dance and the race (which Jenneke blew away the competition in) with a hat tip to The Big Lead for this one.
