Michelle " Shelly " Jenneke (/ˈdʒɛnəkə/; born 23 June 1993) is an Australian hurdler and model. She won a silver medal for the 100 m hurdles at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics and the 100 m hurdles at the 2016 Australian Athletics Championships to qualify for the Rio Olympic Games. In 2012, she received worldwide media attention after her pre-race warm-up dance went viral on the Internet. She was featured in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

enneke’s personal best is 12.82 set at the Australian Athletics Championships in Brisbane on 29 March 2015.[22] She finished second at nationals[23] to qualify for the 2015 World Championships in Beijing. Jenneke got through the heats to make the semi-finals. She finished sixth in her semi and in 18th place overall.

In March 2016, Jenneke represented Australia at the World Indoor Championships in Portland, Oregon and finished 10th. The next month she won the Australian National Championship 100 m hurdles final with a time of 12.93, qualifying her for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.[24] In August, Jenneke competed in the Olympics but was unable to get out of the heats, finishing in sixth with a time of 13.26. She would have needed a near personal best to qualify as the third qualifying time in her heat was 12.85. Australian head coach Craig Hilliard was critical of her performance.[25]

In August 2017, Jenneke competed in her second World Championships and got through the heats to the semi-finals, finishing in 7th with a time of 13.250. She would have needed a near personal best to reach the final as the second qualifying time in her semi was 12.85. In the BBC’s montage of events (the moments of the games as BBC presenter Gabby Logan called it) on the games’ final evening Jenneke and her warm up jig was featured.

She is gorgeous! Prime breeding stock, seriously!
