Michelle Jenneke absolutely dominated heat 2 of the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend in Barcelona with her 13.52. The video of her warmup and race performance was quickly forced to be taken down, but has since been put back up in slow motion and set to the sounds of pretty bad song that shows just how much she loves the event.
Michelle has a unique go-go dance that she does as part of her warmup that not only shows everybody how much fun she’s having but also is very appropriate for the movements she’s about to undergo during the race. She’s got enough of a lead at the finish to slack off and showboat a little a little before reaching the line:
Apparently the IAAF doesn’t want people watching Track & Field so the original raw footage where you can hear the announcers in the background has been forced down, but that hasn’t stopped folks from uploading edited versions with their own soundtracks or even animated gifs here at: With Leather
Michelle’s final was 13.54, 0.16 seconds behind Morgan Snow and good for 5th place overall.
