‘World’s sexiest athlete’ Alica Schmidt named on Forbes’ ’30 under 30′ list

Alica Schmidt was once dubbed the 'world's sexiest athlete' – and she has now been named on Forbes' coveted '30 under 30' list.

Athletics beauty Schmidt has grown a huge profile online sharing snaps of her life in track and field and beyond.

The 24-year-old has amassed over 3.3 million followers on her Instagram account, and has now been celebrated in Forbes' prestigious list.

Forbes' list includes huge entrepreneurial successes who are below the age of 30.

And Schmidt, clearly thrilled, reacted to the news on her Instagram story: "This means so much to me."

Schmidt now proudly boasts her '30 under 30' Forbes tag in her Instagram bio. And she was also declared the 'world's sexiest athlete' in the Australian magazine Busted Coverage in 2017.

However, Schmidt insists she is not a fan of the 'subjective' tag. "This title doesn't mean anything to me," she told The Sun.

"It’s based on a subjective opinion of someone else judging the appearance of a person. I like to think that beauty comes from the inside!"

Schmidt's growing notoriety as an influencer coincides with her burgeoning career competing on the track.

The 400m star went to the Tokyo Olympics last year but sadly missed the cut for the German squad.

But Schmidt remains determined to complete her Olympic dream as she rides the wave of her new online stardom, whilst also juggling a demanding degree.

"My goal is to make it to the Olympics in Paris in 2024 and become faster," she said.

"I’m also still studying and looking forward to get my bachelor's degree in communication and media design."

She added: "Being on the track, trying to push my myself to the absolute limit, that’s the feeling I live for. It means that I have to sacrifice a lot of things yes, but to me it’s absolutely worth it, as I need athletics to live and breathe."
