Michelle Jenneke (23 June 1993–) is an Australian hurdler and model. She won a silver medal for the 100 m hurdles at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics and the 100 m hurdles at the 2016 Australian Athletics Championships to qualify for the Rio Olympic Games. In 2012, she received worldwide media attention after her pre-race warm-up dance went viral on the Internet. She was featured in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
- I think even if I was to go out there and win the Olympics, everyone’s still going to remember the pre-race routine that I do and the video that went viral so, y’know, that’s alright for me, anything that brings attention to athletics is a good thing, we’re a fairly low-profile sport and I’m just doing what I can to try and give us a bit more of a profile.
- My best advice would be to just have fun and enjoy yourself. If you love what you do it doesn't seem like hard work, just passion. Yeah you have to train hard but you're always going to have fun along the way.
