Aussie Michelle Jenneke the world's favorite new hurdler
Herald Sun ^ | 07/20/12 | Nick Smart

Posted on 07/20/2012 5:09:11 PM PDT by Doogle

Emerging 19-year-old Michelle Jenneke, who hails from Sydney, has become worldwide internet sensation after some very interesting dance moves at last weekend's Barcelona World Junior Championships.

While she completely dominated her women's 100-metre hurdle event, it's Jenneke's sexy warm-up dance - which included wiggling her hips and shimmying - that's made her famous around the Web.

The footage has gone viral and has become a YouTube sensation - with the most popular video one of her moving to a catchy dance tune.

It has gone everywhere, even USA Today - which described the footage as "unique way of stretching."

And before she can be accused of self promotion, it should be noted it appears she does not have a Facebook or Twitter account.

She would be cute without that big black box on her stomach.

I can’t watch any video because of my dial-up connection but if she is moving her hips around that is pretty much standard stretching for hurdlers, male and female.

I was a college hurdler and that is something you just had to do to get loose before a race.

She’s pretty fast but, Lolo will send her to the locker room.

Looking at the actual event video on youtube, one thing that struck me was that, while most running sports appear to be dominated by black athletes, this hurdle event was not one of them.

I see no talent there at all. She’s a reasonably fast exhibitionist, NOT what FR is about! Lolo is a Christian, disciplined athlete with virtue.

I was often the only White guy in a hurdles race. Interestingly, one of the world’s best was a White guy named Richmond Flowers.

I think the best in the world right now is Chinese but he will usually be the only non-Black in most races.

She won the race. Therefore your statement is false.

She’s a reasonably fast exhibitionist, NOT what FR is about!

And noticing cute, physically fit women has been an FR pastime from the beginning.

One of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen was at a college track meet. When I first arrived and was driving around to the old athletes parking lot I got a quick glimpse of her just getting ready to vault in the pole vault.

I remember thinking she had a truly striking figure and looked good in the face from a distance. Nearly always they turn out to look either coarse or somehow not what they seemed from a distance but this one was just the opposite.

Black hair and blue eyes and the sweetest smile you ever saw. She also competed in the long jump and triple jump. She was a slightly above average athlete but not a real star..

Another nice thing is she seemed to have a great relationship with her team mates. In other words not stuck up.

He'd have to put out spike strips.

It’s a crying shame she won’t be at the olympics, I’d actually watch the hurdling events if she were.
