German athlete Alica Schmidt sent her fans into meltdown with a picture from her recent beach holiday to Bali.
The German track and field star, who has been dubbed “the World’s Sexiest Athlete,” took to Instagram last week and burned down the site with a smoking hot photo of herself in a skimpy bikini that left very little to the imagination.
“Can‘t wait to be back in the sun tomorrow,” she captioned the photo.
Schmidt took her talents and good looks to the Tokyo Olympics but never got a chance to compete after the German team was disqualified for making contact with the Jamaican team in the mixed 4x400m relay. She also failed to secure a spot in the lineup for the preliminary 4x400m relays.
That led to her announcing a break from the sport last August, writing at the time: “Not gonna lie, I’m not satisfied with my races this year. I’ve worked harder than ever before day in day out pushed my limits in every workout and made so many sacrifices.
“It was not an easy year with my Covid infection and torn ligaments but nevertheless, I know what I am capable of and I’m hungry for more. Now, I’m going to take a break and I’m looking forward to coming back feeling fresh and ready to train hard again.”
Despite not competing at the Summer Games, Schmidt has gained additional 800,000 Instagram followers during the Olympics, and now has 2.8 million followers.
