This week’s Total Sports Babe is Australian Olympic Swimmer, Stephanie Rice. She currently holds the world record in the 400 m women’s individual medley, and won three gold medals at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Rice made headlines in the news this past week for posting this picture on her twitter account
The bikini was a birthday present from a designer, but the image was considered “racy” by several media news outlets. Psshhhh. C’mon, man! She’s 24 years old and has a killer body. If that’s “racy’, you should see the facebook photos of any 18 to 20 something year old girl who isn’t a complete mess. It’ll be absolutely absurd if there is any type of backlash from the posting of this photo. She’s a swimmer. It’s OK to post photos of herself in a bathing suit. Case closed.
