You all remember Michelle Jenneke, right? Of course you do. She’s the Australian hurdler who became an internet sensation last year because of her enthusiastic pre-race routine, which included dancing and jumping up and down with excitement. The 2010 Summer Youth Olympics silver medalist became so popular after the video went viral that Sports Illustrated has decided to feature her in the 2013 Swimsuit Issue.
As you can see from the video above, Jenneke seems to be a natural fit. She certainly has an outgoing personality (which is not a surprise based on her dance routine) and is obviously attractive enough to be featured alongside women like this. Nicely done, Sports Illustrated. You have once again managed to perfectly bridge the gap between sports and swimsuits.
