Commonwealth Games 2022: Michelle Jenneke Race Times AEST Hurdles Finals, what time is it on TV

Michelle Jenneke bounced, danced, and rocked for her third Commonwealth Games 100m hurdles final.

A full rotation of her trademark pre-race routine with Alexander Jeneke at the stadium produced one of the best races of her career with a wind-affected 12.63 seconds.

That was 3/100ths of a second faster than the personal best she set at last month’s World Championships in Eugene, but in an illegal 2.4 miles per hour (2.0 being the legal mark) wind.

“It’s not considered legal time, but I was really happy because it was the fastest 100m over the hurdle I’ve ever done,” said a beaming Jenneke.

“I was feeling really good in the warm-up. My coach[Gary Vaughn]said I was a little bit better than I was a few weeks ago, which is pretty unbelievable.

“I think I struggled a bit on the trip. After the race in Eugene, I took the bus at 3am to Portland and moved here.

“I don’t feel like I ran well to the end, so I hope I can show a little more in the final in a few days.”

Jenneke says she is not intimidated by new world record holder Tobi Amusan. Tobi Amusan was trailing in the heat against Nigeria’s easily fastest qualifier by 12.40 seconds.

“She’s incredible. I’m one of those people, I don’t want an easy heat, I want my best race. I think that’s how I do my best. I think I proved that by running that time today,” she said.

“I am really looking forward to racing her in the final again.

“For me, when I go there, I’m just trying to go all out and they’re trying to do the same thing, and if they beat me, they beat me.

“As long as I’m only concerned with doing my best, I don’t really care what other athletes are doing other than using them to get fast times.”

Jenneke, 29, finished fourth at the 2018 Gold Commonwealth Games and hopes to earn a medal in her career explosive momentum.

“I’m in the shape of my life and it’s really exciting. I still feel like I have a little more headroom in the tank, but this is a very strong area,” she said.

I didn’t look at who played today, but the start list had 5 out of 8 in the World Champions final, so it’s a very strong field here.

“I don’t know if I can get a medal, but I hope I can beat my personal best and see where I stand.”

Melbourne’s Celeste Mucci also finished third in her heat, tying her personal best of 12.96 seconds into the finals.
