Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke almost broke the internet several years ago when her pre-race dance routine went viral. Just 17 at the time, Jenneke has continued the hard work that allowed her to dominate the race that the dance preceded. She’s now on her way to Rio and the Olympic Games as a member of the Australian National Team.
Her delightful dance and warm personality may have initially gained her the spotlight, but that should not eclipse that facts that she is very hard working and talented. Whether or not she medals next week in the 100 meter hurdles, Jenneke has gained many fans for both herself and Team Australia as well as her sport of track and field. Good luck to you Michelle!
