Sportette - Michelle Jenneke / by Julia Wheeler

Channel 9's, Samantha Sqiures and Managing Editor of Sport - Australasia at Future, Aaron Lee, asked me to snap Michelle Jenneke for Samantha's amazing new womans sports website - purely dedicated to woman in sport. Check it out - Sportette.com.au

Michelle is amazing. A super tomboy at heart and with a pretty cool mum as her manager! Our shoot was easy, simple and a lot of fun. Samantha wanted something natural and lifestyle focused to accompany an article about Michelle.

Known as the “Dancing Hurdler”, after footage of her pre-race warm-up dance was captured at a 100 metres hurdles heat at the 2012 Junior World Championships in Barcelona - this babe went viral. I think there are over 25 million hits on her little dance on youtube - it's a must see - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMgmYutL9W0

And yeah, the girl can dance. But holy shit - can she RUN! She's certainly determined, focussed and purely awesome. Thanks Sam, Michelle and Aaron.
