Hurdler Michelle Jenneke says she wants to be known for more than just her 'jiggling' dance routine

She's the young hurdler who set the internet alight for her energetic warm-up dance.

But Australian athlete Michelle Jenneke has revealed she wants to be known for more than just her signature 'jiggling' routine.

The then-19-year-old quickly shot to fame after her bubbly dance at the World Junior Championships in Barcelona in 2012 went viral.

Speaking to Stella Magazine, the now-24-year-old, from Sydney, said her pre-race routine actually helps her get into a 'good physical and mental space'.

Jenneke said her warm-up dance attracted criticism after she was bombed out of the opening round of the 100m hurdles heat at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

'People can be very quick to build you up and then cut you down, but they don't know what's going on behind the scenes. All they see is when you get out there on that track. A range of factors go on that affect performance,' she said.
