Meet Stephanie Rice of Australia, the hot pinup girl and Olympic gold medal champion in the women’s 400 meter women’s 400 meters individual medley. See her modeling photos, Facebook pictures, biography, and Olympics gold medal video here.
The hot Australian won the women’s 400 meters individual medley with a time of 4 minutes and 28.45 seconds. Zimbabwe’s Kirsty Coventry finished second and Katie Hoff of the United States finished in 3rd place. The race was held at the National Aquatics Center in Beijing China on August 10, 2008.
She said that she was feeling sick before the race. “Going into the ready room I started getting chills on my body. I knew I was starting to get more and more excited. I was pretty emotional after that race. I’m pretty excited to get that first one under my belt.”
As a biography, her biggest previous claims to fame were hot FHM pics and raunchy Facebook photos that were posted on the internet. They are just fun party pics, including suggestive ones of her with friends in a dominatrix police outfit. Find her Facebook images below, including suggesting poses with boyfriend Eamon Sullivan.
Stephanie Rice was born June 17th, 1988 in Queensland Australia, so she is a 20 year old Olympic champion.
She hold world records in both the 200 meter and 400 meter individual medleys, so she was the odds-on favorite in the Beijing Olympics. She has upgraded her game considerably in the last year as she won only a bronze medal at the 2007 Melbourne World Championships.
Then suddenly at the Olympics trials in 2008, she started setting world records. She shattered the old record in the 400 meters by taking almost two seconds off it, finishing with an astounding 4:31:46. Then in the 200 meters, she took a full second off the old record by finishing at 2:08:92.
The came the historic race on August 9th, 2008, in which Stephanie Rice obliterated the recent world record with an incredible new world record time of 4.29.45 in the 400 individual medley.
Still we find her sex life and party girl image more interesting. So to continue her biography, Stephanie Rice’s boyfriend was a boy toy named Eamon Sullivan, who is also a champion swimmer. They broke up just before the Olympics, which may be contributing to her faster times. No more sore thighs. My guess is they do it like wild kangaroos.
They are still best friends. In fact she recently said “You never know what the future holds, but we aren’t really thinking about getting back together until after Beijing.”
