Dancing hurdler Michelle Jenneke bows out of the Olympics 2016 after her warm-up performance. She ended up in the sixth spot in her 100-meter hurdles heat in Rio de Janeiro after clocking 13.26 seconds. Although the high-profile Australian athlete did not even make it to the finals, she did a hot workout video that?s as good as gold.
The 23-year-old dancer/model/athlete, who also become an internet sensation for her bubbly dance moves, admitted that it is the worst race she ever had. She broke 13 seconds in 2015 and was able to continue to the semifinals at the world championships.
Jenneke is known internationally for her famous warm-up routine. It?s a mixture of dancing and stretching in which she places her hands on her hips. Then she twists from side to side. She is also famous as one of the faces of a soft drink company?s Rio campaign.
Falling flat at the track in Rio games, Jenneke wasn?t able to hide her disappointment. She said a few things have gone wrong. Jenneke confessed that she had been dealing with a bit of nerve pain down her right side.
In addition, Jenneke said she should have run faster, but she failed. After her unsatisfactory finish, she revealed that athletics isn?t her only priority at this point of her life. She recognizes that she is young and still goes to the university and lives at home.
Amid the admiration of many, Jenneke also obtained some criticism from a number of Olympic fans. Some fans claim that her popularity comes from her dance moves and social media followers. ?Her fame does not actually have anything to do with her on-track performance.
Meanwhile, former world champion Brianna Rollins finished her race with a time of 12.54 seconds in women?s 100-meter hurdles semifinals at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil. Fellow American Kristi Castlin, on the other hand, clocked 12.68 seconds.
