Track Beauty of the Week: Marina Schneider
July 25, 2010Posted by on
Marina Schneider is this week’s track beauty!
The Austrian high jumper and heptathlete competed at the 2008 World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The same year, Schneider had won the Miss Austria crown, representing the small, landlocked country in the Miss World contest.
Beauty – and I mean top notch, world-beating beauty – and brawns? Now that’s a rarity.

Judging from her IAAF biography, it seemed as if she has long since retired from international competition. At the 2008 World Junior Champs, she managed an unremarkable 17th place in high jump qualifying.
But then again, her best jump of 1.80m is a decent enough mark (a leap that would merit instant gold in the UAAP Women’s Division and a finals appearance in the Men’s Division).
