‘World’s Greatest Athlete’ Alica Schmidt avoids COVID-19.

After spending a month in coronavirus lockdown, German track sensation Alica Schmidt—dubbed the greatest athlete in the world—returned to training.   

Competing in the 400m event, the 21-year-old German had hoped to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics before the coronavirus outbreak.   

The Puma-sponsored athlete has gone to social media to express her happiness at being free to resume training after Germany's lockdown regulations were recently loosened.   

Schmidt stated in a post from earlier this month: "I can now train on the track once more. I worked outside either by myself or in pairs for the past month.   

"Even though the weather wasn't too bad for the training session, I'm thrilled to be able to train in the stadium as usual again!"  

Schmidt has excelled at the youth level for Germany, winning the silver medal in the 4x400 relay at the 2017 European Athletics Under-20 Championships with her colleagues.   

She then won a bronze in the same competition in the U23 European Championship the previous year.   

Not only has Schmidt been drawing attention to herself on the track, but she also has over 718,000 Instagram followers, many of whom adore her sultry photos.
