The Return of the Weekend Video

In true Olympic spirit, The Year in Pictures proudly presents the latest viral video - Australian Michelle Jenneke's pre-race warmup routine in the 2012 IAAF World Junior Championship in Barcelona last weekend.

Not just a pretty face (and figure) the 19-year-old dominated her event - the 100-meter hurdles. And while Jenneke is not competing in the London Olympics, until her chance in 2016 sports fans will have to be content with what the video creators described as "an overt celebration of Jenneke and her dancing and running presented in gratuitous slow motion, and with an awful song over it." (Awful song version above, slow motion version below.)

So filled with joy! And so unhesitant to show it. She must be a remarkable person.
