Melbourne, July 26 (ANI): Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke, who has enthralled the world with her pre-race warm-up dance routine, is not just blessed with beauty and a bubbly personality but also turns out to be brainy.
This year she deferred a course in mechatronic engineering at Sydney University, a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Meanwhile, her mother Nicky, she doesn’t know what all the fuss is about her dance routine before races.
“She’s been doing this the last three years. She doesn’t get nerves before a race, she just gets very excited,” she said.
“Even before she raced Sally Pearson (at last year’s Australian championships, where she finished third) she did this full 360-degree spin,” she added.
Jenneke’s heart is in the right place, too, as she will head to Tanzania later this year for three months as a volunteer with International Volunteer HQ. (ANI)
