Since the "world's sexiest athlete" ALICA SCHMIDT demonstrated that an absence of flab makes the heart grow fonder
After a training camp, the German sprinter flaunted her abs on the cover of Women's Health.
With her sights set on the 2020 Olympics in Paris, 24-year-old Alica has amassed 3.7 million Instagram followers.
Her 400-meter sprinting prowess has earned her a spot on Forbes' 30 under 30 list of the world's most prominent young people.
The news of that honor sent the part-time model to tears.
If her hope of seeing Paris in 2024 comes true, she'll be even more moved.
Three years ago, she made the German relay team for Japan, but she ultimately decided against competing.
She has been hinting at her Parisian destination with some deep thoughts ever since she posted crop-top running photos last week.
