Rice tweets racy swimsuit pic

2012-06-27 09:15

Cape Town - Swimmer Stephanie Rice is catching flak in her native Australia for tweeting a picture of herself in a racy swimsuit.

According to the Yahoo! Sports website, the three-time Olympic gold medalist took the photo of herself wearing a birthday gift from designer Ellie Gonsalves and posted it on Twitter. It made figurative waves one month before she defends her Olympic titles in both the 200m and 400m individual medleys in London.

Some Twitter commenters thought it was another disgrace to an Australian swim team that's recently dealt with a gun controversy.

Rice used to date Wallaby and Reds flyhalf Quade Cooper.

    The Aussies are disgraced because they would rather preferred to have seen a sheep in a stunning bikini :-)

      The sad thing is you probably don't even realise how pathetic you are. You find solitude in a couple of sheep jokes. Your jealousy of Australian sporting achievements is eminent in your poor attempt of finding some laughter with other similar losers.

    The pics wouldn't be so bad if Rice didnt have a huge dorsal fin where most people have thier noses.
