German Olympic track star Alica Schmidt may be dubbed the “world’s sexiest athlete,” but she’s not doing much competing right now.
The 22-year-old was stripped of her ability to compete on Saturday’s 4×400 mixed relay, due to her team’s disqualification.
The German team reportedly received the disqualification due to making contact with the Jamaican team.
Schmidt may still be able to make the relay on Friday, though it is uncertain.
The athlete has been training inside of the Olympic Village, stating that “preparation [as part of Team Deutschland] is going well and the food is delicious.”
According to the New York Post, Schmidt has a significant social media following, which has led to sponsorships and extra income.
“Off the track, I’m grateful to my followers, because Instagram enables me to do my sport without having to have a part-time job,” she said. “It is difficult to make a living from athletics alone.”
