'TOKYO IS CALLING - I'm going to the Olympics!,' Schmidt announced on Instagram.

'Still feels unreal! I'm so grateful and at the same time thrilled to experience something I have been dreaming of since I started all of this! Bring it on - I so can't wait for this.'

The 22-year-old German track and field star was dubbed the 'World's Sexiest Athlete' in 2017 by a number of Web sites, but there's much more to Alica than her voluminous blonde hair and stunning blue eyes.

And her reaction was: 'I do not know why I got this title. Sport clearly comes first.'

Alica has been running competitively for years. She finished second in the 2017 European Athletics Under-20 Championship in the 4×400 relay, where she took home silver. In 2019, Schmidt won bronze at the U-23 Europeans.

She will be seen in action on August 5 in the heats for women's 4×400m relay and if the Germans do well in the the final on August 7.
