In news that will make you go, “wah??”, Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice has been hired by the Kardashians.
If you’re sitting there thinking, ‘that name seems familiar but I’m not exactly sure who they are’ it’s probably because Rice’s hey-day has somewhat passed. She won Australia Olympic Gold in 2008 and at the time was dating fellow hotshot Olympic swimmer Eamon Sullivan. They were a big deal, okay?
But back to Stephanie.
Since winning becoming an Olympic gold medalist, she’s retired and, as many athletes do, has gone through the rigmarole of readjusting to life as a normal human who doesn’t train 12 hours a day. She’s battled eating disorders and life outside the pool, before finding peace as a b-grade celeb and vegan.
But she’s reclaiming relevance, with the news that she is partnering with Khloe Kardashian’s brand Good American. Girl has come a long way from her days as Davenport ambassador, that’s for sure!
