Track Beauty of the Week: Janin Lindenberg
March 5, 2011Posted by on
Janin Lindenberg is this week’s track beauty!
Lindenberg is a mainstay of the formidable German 4x400m relay squad. The Berlin-born athlete was part of the silver-medal winning team from the 2010 Barcelona European Championships. This was Lindenberg’s first major championship medal.

The German has quite a collection of prominent tattoos as well, making her stand out among the rest of the field. In English, the words mean love, faith and hope.
The tall sprinter has a personal best of 52.20s in the outdoor 400m dating back to 2010. Lindenberg has had a stellar indoor season to date, in which she notched an indoor personal best of 52.26s, a mere six one-hundredths of a second off her outdoor best.
At the ongoing European Indoor Championships in France, the 24-year old finished a strong second in the semis (53.12s), earning a spot in the final where she notched a respectable fifth.
