Australian women’s 100m hurdling star Michelle Jenneke, 29, comes to the Commonwealth Games fresh from her fourth World Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

She qualified for the semifinals there in a blistering time of 12.66 seconds, becoming the second fastest Australian woman. However, she finished 11th overall in a star-studded field.

The Dural ace is one of the many outstanding alumni from Cherrybrook Little Athletics who has made it to the world stage. She will be keen to improve on her fourth place at the 2018 Gold Coast Games. She has genuine pace and the smooth action to go all the way this time, having come close to snatching a medal at the previous Games

Jenneke, a classy all-round sportswoman, is internationally famous for her warm-up dance which has gone viral around the world. One version of the video of her pre-race warm-up notched an incredible 30 million views on YouTube.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][us_image image=”68541″ size=”full” align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
