Aussie hurdler Michelle Jenneke invents new sport of hallway hurdles

We’re not sure her neighbours will be too happy though.

YOU MAY REMEMBER Michelle Jenneke. She’s a decent hurdler who really came to the world’s attention after this video of her pre-race warm up went viral.

Well, during a recent thunderstorm she found herself struggling to get to her training venue so improvised in a way that her neighbours probably won’t be overly pleased with.

Posting on her Instagram account, the 20-year old said:

“Who needs an indoor track with a hallway like this! Thunder storms outside won’t stop my final prep for this Saturday’s Perth Track Classic”
