Teen's routine steals Pearson spotlight
15:30 AEST Thu Jul 19 2012

On the eve of the London Olympics all eyes may be on world champion Sally Pearson, but another Aussie hurdler has stolen the spotlight at the World Junior Championships in Barcelona.

Michelle Jenneke stunned the world with her pre-race routine ahead of her heat in the women's 100m hurdles. The 19-year-old, from Cherrybrook in Sydney's north west, busted out a series of dance moves in an ultra-relaxed state of mind before her event.

The energetic warm-up didn't seem to affect her as she then blitzed the field and easily won her heat.

Jenneke didn't qualify for the London Games, but organisers of the Brazil Olympics will be hoping she brings her samba moves to the South American nation in 2016.
