This fresh faced beauty from down under did the impossible this past weekend: a simple video of her warming up before (and then eventually winning) a race became even more popular worldwide than the much anticipated Dark Knight Rises!
So who exactly is this Michelle Jenneke who topped Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan?
Name : Michelle "Shelley" Jenneke
Age : 19
Born : June 23, 1993
Home : New South Wales, Australia
Event : 100 meter hurdles
Personal best: : 13.39 seconds
Top medal performances:
Silver in the 2010 Youth Games in Singapore
Gold in the 2012 World Junior Championships in Barcelona
Diamond (10 Million views) in the 2012 YouTube Viral Video Awards
Although she eventually did not make the cut for the London Olympics, hopes are high (especially among men) that she will make it to Brazil in 2016!
When Michelle does make it to the Olympics, expect the highest ratings ever for a Track and Field event, surpassing the viewers for Michael Johnson's record-breaking runs. (Remember his Golden Nikes in 1996?)
Everyone will certainly fall in love with this bubbliest of Australian athletes~
The biggest compliment you can get online? A spoof of your video getting over half a million hits!
Off the track, "Shelley" is a normal teenager who loves dressing up for Halloween as Wonder Woman...
