Stephanie Rice is a 3 time gold medal winner for the Australian swim team. She also has an awesome swimmers body. So i’m pretty sure that she didn’t see the backlash coming when she posted a picture of herself on twitter wearing a not-too-skimpy bikini. After all, she wears a swimsuit for a living!

A commenter on Business Insider couldn’t understand the outrage because the volleyball team wears bikinis that actually show more skin than Stephanie’s does.

She has done a lot of modeling to promote the swim team but it is confusing why this photo is causing such an uproar. Possibly it’s because she is posting them on her personal account.

The blowback by some Australians is so bad that a few are actually calling for her to be dropped from the team.

Other people just don’t really care:

    I see nothing wrong with the picture. If she is dropped then drop all Aus. women athletes that wear a bathing suite because they show just as much as she did in this picture.

    Michael Phelps wears less of a speedo most of the time. I’d much rather see her in hers.

    There are so many jealous people out there. There are also many bored trolls who are feasting on the silliness. Onward, Internet, with your nonsense.

    Male teams mates post the same pose and skimpy outfits. Probably, wouldn’t get the same reaction. TOTALLY UNFAIR for her and others. But, she is a cute.

    To Mendy Menendez:: When you get to be boss, manager,supervisor, owner or whatever of the swim team THEN you can fire/drop here. Have a nice day ! TA TA

    What is the deal with over judgemental people. I deal with them every day. I think she looks good and should be let be.
