Michelle Jenneke is back. A few weeks ago, the 29-year-old Australian hurdler finished second in her 100m hurdles heat behind World Champion Tobi Amusan at the Commonwealth Games.
However, she missed out on a bronze medal by just 0.09 seconds as she finished fifth in the final of the 100m hurdles at the Commonwealth Games. She was just 0.02 seconds off her personal best with a negative wind blowing in her face and it still wasn’t enough for a medal as she fell away in the final 40m.
This week, she was all smiles as she sizzled in a bikini while at the beach.
In 2010, she won multiple medals at the Oceania Youth Championships. Unfortunate injuries have prevented Jenneke from reaching her full potential over the past few years.
It has officially been a full decade since Jenneke went viral for her pre-race ritual.
Let us remind you:
The 29-year-old has been given the moniker “Jiggling” Jenneke for her pre-race dancing routine.
“Honestly, I feel like I run the best when I’m happy and relaxed and just soaking it all up,” she said. “That’s what works for me, so that’s what I do.”
“I had a pretty rough two years. There were times people in my inner circle were saying to me, ‘Are you sure you want to be doing this?’ And I was just saying back to them, ‘I’ve got more in me’. It shows that I have and I’m really glad I could show the world what I’m capable of,” she said.
