The “world’s sexiest athlete” Alica Schmidt was on the world stage this weekend as she and her teammates competed in the 4x400m mixed relay during her first World Championships.
The German runner would end up being the final leg of the race, but she could not make us the difference in the race and team finished only fifth in the second heats and failed to qualify for the final.
The 23-year-old says she remains in high spirits despite the early exit in Eugene.
She wrote on her Instagram: “Not the result we wanted in yesterday‘s 4×4 mixed relay and we know that we are capable of a lot more.
“But heads up and on to the next one! 4x400m relay on Saturday next week.
“Nevertheless I‘m thankful to be here on my first World Championships and gain a lot of experience.”
Schmidt has been dubbed the world’s sexiest athlete and has three million followers on Instagram.
Despite her incredible looks, she insists she is focused on her athletics and has bounced back since she was snubbed from joining Germany’s Olympics team in Tokyo last year.
