‘World’s sexiest athlete’ Alica Schmidt reveals TINY wages for competing on track and why she turned to social media

Schmidt has run 400m at the World and European championships. She was a reserve for Germany's relay team in the previous Olympics. Even elite athletes struggle to cover their fees, according to the beauty.

Schmidt: "Most German track and field athletes struggle to make a life. "If we are in the squad, in the national team, we receive £611 from Sporthilfe."

Schmidt makes extra money on Instagram, where she has 4.7 million followers. Many athletes work part-time or study.

The blonde bombshell said, "I am grateful that I earn my money with social media and can save myself another part-time job."

Schmidt recently stunned her millions of followers with a blue bikini. She looked lovely in a black outfit. Schmidt wants to join Germany's Paris 2024 Olympic team.
