Michelle Jenneke ‘Sexy As Hell’ YouTube Video Goes Viral, Australian ‘Dancing Hurdler’ Gets Nude Photos Offer
A YouTube video of Michelle Jenneke dancing "sexy as hell" has gone viral, catapulting the Australian hurdler into international stardom a la Kate Upton and even scoring her a possible offer to pose nude for photos.
The video, uploaded on Wednesday, shows 19-year-old Jenneke dancing in her uniform consisting of briefs and a sports bra in a sexy style wiggling her hips slowly to "Boys (Summertime Love)" by Sabrina. Captured while warming up at the IAAF Junior World Championships in Barcelona 2012, "Michelle Jenneke Dancing Sexy as Hell at Junior World Championships in Barcelona 2012″ known simply as the "dancing hurdler" video has garnered nearly 12 million hits as of Tuesday morning. Jenneke is projected to become even more of a superstar despite failing to qualify for the London Olympics after the video was picked up and syndicated on the Empower Network Blog, which is responsible for sprucing up Jenneke's video.
"The first Michelle Jenneke YouTube video did not get much attention, but then somewhat edited the footage to reveal her hip-shaking moves in slow motion and in time with the song "Boys" by Sabrina that the viral process started to take off," said a website spokesperson.
Thanks to the video, Jenneke is now an international sensation just like model Kate Upton, who became larger than life after she recorded a video of herself doing "the Dougie" at a Clippers game. The video went viral on YouTube, followed by her infamous "Cat Daddy" dance, which needs no introduction.
Jenneke was even reportedly asked by Sex.com to pose nude, but for a charity of course. According to a press release on XBIZ.com, the website offered Jenneke an offer to pose nude for a "sizable donation" to the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).
"She's the right amount of cute and sexy, not to mention her body is clearly in peak condition," Sex.com spokesperson Martin Ellison said. "Michelle Jenneke has shown a sex appeal that's uncommon in female athletes and we want Michelle to know that she can use her sexuality to not only raise her profile but also benefit athletes all over her country."
Michelle Jenneke is a hurdler from New South Wales and is Australia's International Associations of Athletics Federations' (IAAF) 100 meter hurdle champion. In July, she placed fifth in the 2012 IAAF World Junior Championships 100 meters hurdles.
