ALICA SCHMIDT may well be many people's favourite German athlete at Tokyo 2020.
But unfortunately, she hasn't actually seen any action yet.
The 22-year-old, dubbed by some as the 'world's sexiest athlete', is in Japan after qualifying for her nation's 400m relay squad.
She has so far been limited to supporting from the sidelines, however, after being benched for Germany's botched mixed 4x400m attempt last weekend.
Without Schmidt, Germany qualified for the final – only to be disqualified for making contact with the Jamaican team.
She could still feature at the Games, however, in the 4x400m women's relay.
Germany take on the likes of Australia and France among others in their heat later today.
And if they go through, they will compete for medals in tomorrow's final.
Schmidt has still been making the most of her Games experience from the sidelines, keeping her hordes of social media followers updated.
She has been a regular poster on TikTok.
And she has also made sure not to neglect her 2.3million Instagram followers.
