Michelle Jenneke achieves a remarkable career by being part of Australia’s Olympic team

With a significant accomplishment just before the Olympics in Paris, Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke has demonstrated her continued dominance in the world of athletics.

Just a few weeks before the Paris Games, the athlete set a new personal record, sending a warning to the rest of the 100-metre hurdles competition.

In an Instagram post, Jenneke shared:“PB by this much!!! 12.65 at the FBK Games [World Athletics event in the Netherlands] last night for the fastest race of my life.”

“Thanks so much to the amazing crowd who stuck it out through the rainy weather to cheer us on,” she added. This was a tremendous victory after missing the qualifications for the Tokyo Olympics back then.

Jenneke’s athletic performance

After making a strong comeback in 2023, the 31-year-old qualified for the 100-metre hurdles at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest with a lightning-fast time of 12.77, surpassing fellow Australians Celeste Mucci and Hannah Jones.

In April, she won the Australian national championships with a dominant time of 12.88 seconds, earning her ticket to the Paris Olympics. She is now the second-fastest Australian women’s hurdler in history, only surpassed by Sally Pearson, whose 12.28 from 2011 is still the national record.

Jenneke qualified for the Rio Olympics after winning silver at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics and the 2016 Australian Athletics Championships.
