Michelle Jenneke, an Australian 100m hurdler, rose to international fame when a video of her doing her pregame dance went viral in 2012. The following year, she appeared in the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.” But before everyone in the world knew who she was, she was already well-known in her country for being a talented hurdler. It’s no wonder, considering she started training at the age of 10.
The hurdler studied Mechatronics, which is a branch of engineering, at Sydney University. She’s got over 500,000 followers on her Instagram account, where she stays active and posts pictures of her events and extracurriculars.
