Michelle Jenneke Does Australia, Dance Community, Proud   1 comment

Dammit, I love track and field! Especially when there’s an Aussie competing, and even more so when there’s an Aussie winning.

When competing at any level of sport, if you’re going to do wild and crazy things, you’d better be damn sure you’re also going to take home the gold. Losers who do wild and crazy things just look wild and crazy. And sad. Winners, on the other hand, can channel their cray cray into talent-backed fame and Internet viral videos. Case in point: Australian athlete Michelle Jenneke and her 100m hurdle pre-race dance at the World Junior Olympics in Barcelona earlier this week.

As you can see, she’s a happy, smiling Australian athlete who clearly knows how to shake out those pre-race jitters. It’s a wonder with all the dancing that they actually show the race, but stay until the end. It’s worth it.
I could have posted a link to the actual race, but this version’s been plussed with music in a way words just can’t describe.
