Stephanie Rice, Olympic Swimmer, Upsets Fans with Bikini-Based Twit Pic

by at . Comments

A month before making literal waves in a London swimming pool at the 2012 Olympics, Australian Stephanie Rice is making figurative ones for a photo she recently posted on Twitter.

The three-time gold medalist snapped a shot of herself in a bikini this week, showing off both her body and a birthday gift from designer Ellie Gonsalves. Simple and harmless, right? Not to some of Rice's followers.

"i feel that stephanie rice posting a photo of herself in swimwear has brought disgrace to the australian swim team and she should be dropped," wrote one Twitter user, presumably taking issue with Rice for... okay, we have no idea.

Showing more skin here than she does while donning official Olympic attire? The nerve!

Rice is no stranger to somewhat racy Twitter photos, as evidenced by this picture of herself as a police officer.

She was also once rumored to be dating Michael Phelps, which would be less scandalous than perfectly understandable from both points of view.

So, in conclusion: Team Stephanie Rice in a Bikini!
