German runner and hurdler Alica Schmidt is a remarkably talented athlete.

The 24-year-old is a former U20 European silver medalist and she also served as the fitness coach for German soccer giants Borussia Dortmund in 2020-21.

Additionally, Schmidt is world-renowned for her stunning good looks.

Busted Coverage named Schmidt the “world’s hottest track athlete” in 2017. She has over 3.7 million followers on Instagram and also works as a runway model when she’s not competing.

When asked about her new nickname, Schmidt told The Sun “I do not know why I got this title. Sport comes clearly first There are thousands of girls on Instagram who look good and still do not have as many fans.”

But while she’s well accomplished off the track, Schmidt still sees herself as an athlete first

“I just want to be perceived as an athlete, I want to inspire young people and give them an insight into my beautiful sport,” she told The Free Press Journal in 2022. The fact that I get to meet so many incredibly interesting people is still unbelievable for me and I am infinitely grateful for all these experiences.”

Schmidt showed off that athleticism in her latest viral Instagram post.

The video shows Schmidt running in the 400 meters at the 58th International Pentecost Sport Meeting in Germany. She took fourth place in the event.

But that didn’t stop it from blowing up.

Within 24 hours the video garnered over 115,000 likes and over 600 comments.

It’s far from the first time Schmidt has gone viral. Take, for instance, the mesmerizing video of her warmup routine prior to her hurdles race earlier this year.

Or her regular workout videos which she posts to her Instagram page.

It’s clear that Schmidt’s star is as bright as ever. And it’s showing no signs of burning out anytime soon.
