Michelle Jenneke for Sports Illustrated

Some models spend years upon years trying to make it into the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. And mostly they still don’t make it.

For Michelle Jenneke, an Australian athlete, all it took was a great body put in a quick dance video.

You’ve might have seen the 19-year-old’s now-famous pre-race dance, but if you haven’t, go do it here

Jenneke’s instant fame earned her many rewards, including an appearance on The Tonight Show as well as a starring role in another viral video, which you can see here.

And now Jenneke has reached the pinnacle of accidental worldwide fame — Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue. The Australian hurdler posed for the cameras and even did her dance with some of the photographers. You can see her performance below.

Picked to appear under the ‘athletes’ section, the young Aussie appears alongside US surfer Alana Blanchard and Dutch hockey stars Ellen Hoog and Eva de Goede.
