There she is, minding her own business, trying to do her job as a soccer referee and you go and do something like this.
The look on her face, however, is priceless.
Women’s high hurdles is not usually a high profile event in sports, even at the Summer Olympics . . . but it may be, in four years in Barcelona thanks to young Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke. In the video below, you’ll see that Michelle has, shall we say, a unique way of warming up. And it must work because she won her heat at the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend very easily.
WARNING: You may spend most of the day watching this video over and over again once you see it.
Additional details from our favorite UK tabloid, the Daily Mail:
A young Australian hurdler is taking the Internet by storm with a warm-up dance she performed during the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend in Barcelona. To shake off pre-race jitters, Michelle Jenneke, wearing a bright green ribbon in her hair, smiles as she hops up and down, wiggling her hips and waving to the crowd. The 19-year-old’s warm-up routine has had nearly 133,000 views since it was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, with Twitter users labelling her ‘The Hottest Hurdler Ever’.

The Bobby Petrino Scandal: the gift that keeps on giving. This morning we had a post about the second other woman in his life, a young Republican and Razorback fan named Alison Melder who also did a little modeling. She also claims to have won the Miss Bikini 2008 competition. Now comes a video of Ms. Melder dancing in that contest.
We can hardly wait to see what happens next in this mess.
Here’s more from the YouTube description:
Here’s a bikini contest featuring model and Arkansas Young Republicans National Committee Woman Alison Melder. Melder also exchanged hundreds of text messages with former Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino.
And, shockingly, with all the punching and kicking going on, no one ended up on the ground clutching a knee. And yet, during a game, a stiff breeze can send a player to the turf in agony.
Here’s more from the Daily Mail:
Shamed Crawley duo Pablo Mills and Claude Davis have written letters of apology following their roles in a mass brawl after the club’s win at Bradford City on Tuesday night.
Red Devils captain Mills and Jamaica international Davis were both sent off – along with Bradford trio Jon McLaughlin, Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies – after a melee in which several punches seen to be were thrown.
And you thought high school girl’s soccer was boring?
A South Carolina TV news crew was taping a game between Chester High School and Lewisville High School when one of the players, Annette McCullough of LHS, falls to the ground. There was a Chester player running with her, but if you watch the video it’s hard to say there was anything but a little incidental contact. McCullogh didn’t think so and immediately gets up, pulls the Chester player to the ground and starts punching her in the face.
Fortunately, a female coach or parent nearby runs in and separates the two and eventually McCullogh is lead off the field by an official. The local sheriff’s office was called and, as a result, McCullough is being charged with simple assault. No word if the victim was seriously injured in the attack. Watch the video for yourself below!
