Michelle Jenneke, a young Australian hurdler, is taking the Internet by storm with her performance during the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend in Barcelona.

But while she completely dominated her first women's 100-meter hurdle heat (and placed fifth in the final), it's Jenneke's warm up dance that's making her famous around the Web.

According to Bleacher Report, the sports blog With Leather originally posted raw, live-stream footage of the 19-year-old's pre-race routine, but it was taken down and replaced with an "overt celebration of Jenneke and her dancing and running presented in gratuitous slow motion, and with an awful song over it."

With Leather was rather unapologetic about sexualizing Jenneke's warm-up dance, releasing its own super slow-motion cut.

USA Today took a more sedate angle on what it called Jenneke's "unique way of stretching," writing, "You have to appreciate anyone who enjoys themselves this much."

Update:
Jenneke's fame continues to spread, and the Australian media aren't holding back on her routine, calling the teenager's warm-up "sexy" and claiming that she's "set hearts ablaze."

"Fans are confident this is only the beginning, and expect to see the [Jenneke] wiggling -- and racing -- at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games in 2016," Sky News reported.

Australian news also added details about the track starlet's personal life. According to News.co.au, Jenneke is a Sydney-area native from the northwest suburb of Kenthurst. Apart from hurdling, her hobbies include Australian football, soccer, handball and taking care of her pet cats and dogs.

"As far back as she can remember, [Jenneke] has had a passion for hurdling, even lining up teddy bears for jumping practice at her parent’s home when she was very young," the News Limited wrote.

Jenneke will not compete in the 2012 London Olympics, but the sexualization of female athletes in the media has been a widely discussed topic surrounding the 2012 games. On the other hand, there has also been coverage that celebrates the power of female athletes.
