‘World’s Sexiest Athlete’ Alica Schmidt emerges from coronavirus lockdown

German track star Alica Schmidt, dubbed the sexiest athlete in the world, has returned to training after a month spent in coronavirus lockdown.

The 21-year-old German, who had been hopeful of taking part in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic prior to the coronavirus crisis, competes in the 400m event.

With Germany recently relaxing their lockdown rules, the Puma-sponsored athlete has taken to social media to express her delight at being able to get back to training.

In a post earlier this month, Schmidt wrote: “I can finally train on the track again. The last month I did everything alone or in pairs outside.

“I am so happy to be able to train in the stadium again as usual even if nature was not that bad for the training session!”

Schmidt has starred at junior level for Germany, as she and her teammates claimed the silver medal in the 4×400 relay at the European Athletics Under-20 Championships in 2017.

She followed that up with a bronze in the same event in the U23 European Championship last year.

And it’s not just heads she has been turning on the track, with Schmidt boasting over 718,000 Instagram followers — many of whom love her saucy snaps.

The Australian magazine, “Busted Coverage,” labeled Schmidt as the “World’s Sexiest Athlete”.

Speaking of her moniker, she once said: “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 makes you interesting, and that’s just competitive sport for me.”
