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?

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    jughed Says:

    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!

    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.
