Alicia Coutts set to swim on to Rio 2016


Read The Age

Australian swim star Alicia Coutts is set to swim on to the Rio Olympics, and it’s all thanks to her wedding venue being booked out.

Coutts had initially planned to marry her fiance Steve this year, with the pair floating the prospect of having kids next year.

But after failing to secure their preferred wedding venue for this year, Coutts will tie the knot in September 2015.

And given the Rio Olympics is less than 11 months after that, Coutts says she’s likely to put off kids until after the Games.

“I’m not 100 per cent saying I’m going to Rio. But seeing as my wedding is now in September 2015, there is a good chance I’ll swim on to Rio,” Coutts said on Thursday.
