Sexy Aussie hurdler in Sports Illustrated

Yahoo!7 February 13, 2013, 10:13 am

Aussie hurdler Michelle Jenneke, who became an internet sensation with her sexy pre-race warm up last year, will feature in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Little known before last year's IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona last year, one video of her warm up has had over 20m views on You Tube.

Her profile is set to soar again after being chosen as one of just four athletes to feature in the coveted magazine issue.

The other athletes featured are Hawaiian surfer Alana Blanchard and Dutch hockey stars Ellen Hoog and Eva de Goede.

The rising star will be back in town for the QANTAS Australian Athletics Tour meets in Sydney and Melbourne in the next two months.

"I'm really looking forward to the prospect of running in Sydney and Melbourne," Jenneke said.

"It would be a real honour to run there, particularly in front of my family and friends in Sydney."

    Sex sells. She won her heat in Barcelona but finished out of medal contention. Grab the brass ring while you can. In a few years she will be "What's Her Name?"

    Pity female sports stars still have to sell their soul in order to get some recognition. You will never see any male athletes having to resort to this #$%$

    indeed a gorgeous woman.. unfortunately this is what australian athletes have to do just to support themselves in their chosen sport to represent their own country... thank you to all political parties..
