Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke's face can be seen plastered all over billboards across Rio but her performance on the track probably isn't why.

The 23 year old's Olympics came to an abrupt end after she placed sixth in her heat with a time of 13.26 seconds, falling short of her personal best of 12.86 -- a time that would have seen her into the semi finals.

Jenneke was chosen by Coca-Cola to be one of the face's of this years Olympic campaign but it appears her trademark warm up dance may be what she's most remembered for in these Olympics.

Her familiar moves, which she didn't disappoint with in Rio have seen her gather a serious social media following, be the subject of many GIFs and even earned her a sports illustrated cover.

The pre-race jig first went viral during the 2012 World Junior Championships in Barcelona propelling Jenneke into internet stardom.

Fans will be disappointed not to see anymore of Jenneke at this year's Olympics, leaving them wondering if 2020 will be a better year.
