World's sexiest athlete Alica Schmidt competes in first World Championships but suffers heartbreak in 4x400m relay | The Sun
THE "world's sexiest athlete" Alica Schmidt suffered heartbreak in the 4x400m mixed relay during her first World Championships.
The German runner and her colleagues finished only fifth in the second heats and failed to qualify for the final.
But Schmidt, 23, says she remains in high spirits despite the early exit in Eugene.
She wrote on her Instagram: "Not the result we wanted in yesterday‘s 4×4 mixed relay and we know that we are capable of a lot more.
"But heads up and on to the next one! 4x400m relay on Saturday next week.
"Nevertheless I‘m thankful to be here on my first World Championships and gain a lot of experience."

Germany's failure to qualify for the final mean they missed out on a crazy conclusion to the mixed relays.
Allyson Felix led with 50 metres to go but was caught by a charging Fiordaliza Cofil of the Dominican Republic who took the lead.
