Track Beauty of the Week: Alenka Bikar

Alenka Bikar is this week’s track beauty!

The retired Slovenian sprinter was never world champion, or even European champion. In fact, Bikar is famous in internet circles because of a particular body part. Underneath all the admittedly tasteless close-ups, however, was a fairly decent world-level sprinter.

In a career spanning two Olympic Games and five outdoor world championships, Bikar had set personal bests of 11.21s and 22.76s in the 100m and 200m dashes, respectively.

Her best event was the 200m. In the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton, Bikar finished a strong fifth in the final, stopping the clock at 22.76s, matching her lifetime best. Indoors, the Slovenian was just as powerful. In the 2000 European Championships in Gent, Bikar won her first and only major international podium, a silver medal.
