By now you may have seen the video of Australian hurler Michelle Jenneke, 19, embarking on an unfiltered display of pure ecstasy just before competing in the IAAF World Junior Championships in Barcelona event a few days ago. While warming up for her race, Jenneke begins shaking her hips, then her arms, then her fingers, and finally her whole body.
And all I want to say is that it’s kind of delightful. I love a young woman who isn’t afraid to celebrate her sport in such an uninhibited way. Carry on, Jenneke. Carry on.
