Melbourne, Aug 26 : Swim star Stephanie Rice may have denied dating 14-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, but she has admitted that the American pool star 'has a great body'.
Asked if there was anything going on between her and Phelps, Rice said: "For me, Michael Phelps is a huge inspiration and someone I really look up to."
Meanwhile, Rice and Eamon Sullivan confirmed that they are still apart.
"We are still apart. We are enjoying being good friends. We have spent two years together. You don't lose that," the Daily Telegraph quoted Sullivan, as saying.
Sullivan also said that he had never asked Rice if there was any truth in the rumours that linked her with Michael Phelps - despite her confession that the US swimmer 'has a great body'.
"That's her business. Now that we are friends it is not something I have to worry about," Sullivan said.
