Hurdling Goddess Michelle Jenneke trips and falls on British TV
Michelle Jenneke might need to keep practicing if she still plans to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics. The Australian hurdler, who appeared in the 2013 SI Swimsuit issue, won the silver medal in the 100 meter hurdles at the 2010 Youth Olympics. But her athletic ability apparently doesn’t translate well to television. Jenneke went on A League of Their Own, a U.K. comedy/game show this weekend, where she tripped and broke the hurdle on set. She was a good sport though, and played it off by explaining she was simply distracted by another guest’s extremely short running shorts. Jenneke was one of four athletes to appear in the 2013 SI Swimsuit Issue, joining surfer Alana Blanchard and Dutch field hockey players Eva de Goede and Ellen Hoog. Jenneke’s popularity exploded internationally after a video of her dancing before the 2012 World Junior Championships went viral.
