Stephanie Rice Denies Dating Michael Phelps

Australian Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice is presented with commemorative underwear upon her return to Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.

Rice, 20, is rumored to be dating US golden boy Michael Phelps. When asked about the rumored romance and alleged kiss she and Phelps shared together she said, “No, it was just really great to meet him … and people that you usually see on TV, like [Rafael] Nadal and [Roger] Federer. To me Michael Phelps is a huge inspiration and someone I really look up to.”

Rice received her commemorative underwear along with her former boyfriend, Eamon Sullivan. The couple broke up just before the Beijing Olympics. Sullivan won silver and a bronze but claimed a world record in 100m freestyle heats while Rice collected three gold in three events.

DO YOU THINK Stephanie Rice and Michael Phelps would make a good couple?

think that phelps is an awesome swimmer..he is a great athlete no doubt in that…but i really wouldn’t like these 2 together….i think she could do better :)

Steph & Eamon make a waaay cuter couple. Phelps’ got a good bod.. but Eamon has a better one. haha plus he’s sooo frikkin hot.

Hopefully Steph & Eamon get back together.

# 5

yeah, right. – Rice and Phelps. NOT gonna happen.
it would be nice to see him dating a fellow american
– a fellow swimmer, a gymast … or better yet, someone from baltimore.
plenty of great women at home no need to go down under.

# 6

Eamon is wayy better looking..
Like Stephy would want to hook up with an American dork anyway
As for Abie, your retarded

phelps is an arrogant ******* who really puts himself high up there.

steph’s got a huge ego from all of this but hey she’s hot

# 8

I hope she and Eamon get together again, they were way hot together :)

Well I must admit Phelps looks good when he wear swimming caps.

No, MIchael and I would make a good couple.

Wow when you see Eamon in a bathing suit, he seems very built. But in those jeans, he looks skinny as f*ck.

As for Stephanie & Michael, I REALLY doubt something is going on between the 2. The guy seems to be obsessed with swimming, he ain’t got time for no nookie lol.


oh please!!! nobody even knew who the hell Michael Phelps was until the Olympics in Beijing!!! He may be a good swimmer but he’s cocky as hell!!! and he’s freakin UGLY!!! he looks like he’s retarded!! I hate that cocky son of a b##ch!!!

it’d be a fascinating amateur eugenics project, that’s for sure. so i say go for it.

Phelps is phenomenal and all, but he’s not very good-looking, nor does he seem like he’s going to be a good you-know-what.

Michael Phelps look very handsome swimmer. Cool! I love watch him swimming race. He swimming very fast and good! I hope he is my big idot! Wow! He is very popular swimmer! Great!

Michael Phelps is not cocky at all. He is very very sweet. And he gives credit to his teammates. Maybe the Aussie people didn’t see any good interviews with Michael.

You have to have confidence in yourself to be a great athlete no matter the sport. And if you didn’t know who Michael Phelps was then you don’t follow swimming until the Olymoics. Anyone who does follow it knew of him. I have known of him since he was in HS.

rice and sullivan. for sure. rice is pretty but i don’t like her nose…

Nah, they wouldn’t make a good couple. Stephanie Rice isn’t very pretty, and Phelps is no dreamboat, either.

Plus, all they would do is talk about swimming all dang day!

Sullivan is hot! I think he can do way better than Stephanie Rice, but I also think that she can do better than Phelps.


this gal has a tree trunk bottom. cute face tho. yea that aussie dude is hot, but phelps is pretty good looking in person. i don’t know why he always looks bad in pictures.

Rice needs a nose job bad

Michael Phelps also looks much smaller in person. He is not particularly photogenic, but he is very nice. I think he should stay with the girlfriend he already has here in Baltimore, personally.
