Aussie among 'most desirable' women

Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke has been rated among the world's most desirable women for the pre-race dance routine that rocketed her to fame.

Jenneke was competing at the World Junior Athletics Championships in Barcelona when she was filmed smiling and jumping about on the starting line.

Footage of her moves made her an instant internet sensation and has now earned her the number 10 spot in's annual most desirable list.

"Her biggest victory to date was a silver medal in the 100-meter hurdles at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, but her best performance… well, that’s another story altogether," the website says.

"Dressed in the smallest two-piece tracksuit available, Jenneke bounced and danced, swaying her hips and swinging her hair like a total coquette.

"She eventually finished fifth, but who cares? She wins a gold medal for the sexiest warmup of all time."

Other sportswomen to make the top 99 include USA football goalkeeper Hope Solo at No30, American hurdler Lolo Jones at No41, new UFC signing Ronda Rousey at No43 and US downhill skier Lindsey Vonn at No73.

Jenneke was one of three Aussies in the top 10 along with supermodels Miranda Kerr at No6 and Jessica Gomes at No8.
