The most recent video of German sprinter Alica Schmidt warming up by dancing on the hurdles has gone viral. Schmidt has been called the "world's sexiest athlete."

Alica Schmidt is getting in top shape for the next outdoor track season in Europe, which begins on May 27.

The German National Team hurdler has set his sights squarely on qualifying for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris,

and nothing will distract him from his aim of winning the Outdoor Track & Field season. More than 3.7 million people follow Alica Schmidt on Instagram,

and over 1.5 million people follow her on TikTok. She has been called the "world's sexiest athlete," and her exercise videos frequently go viral.

She is also widely considered to be the best Track and Field competitor in all of Europe.

Her recent video features her perfectly matching the beat of Beyonce's "Upgrade":Just take the barriers down, and you've got yourself some sweet dance movements.

"Even when I'm giving it my all, this girl's training photos beat mine every time." Somebody cited the importance of hurdle training for preserving "coordination, stabilization, intramuscular and isometric support."
