Melbourne, Dec 18 (ANI): It looks like swimming sensation Stephanie Rice wants a new boyfriend this Christmas.
After her stunning Olympics success, she was publicly linked to American swimming superstar Michael Phelps, bad boy Aussie swimmer Nick D'Arcy, Sydney rugby league star David 'Wolfman' Williams and long-time training partner Brendan Capell.
However, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, she insisted her love life had been non-existent.
"Everyone's always 'Steph, you need a boyfriend' and I'm like 'I know, but apparently I have four'. Believe me, one would be just perfect," News.com.au quoted her as saying.
The 21-year-old triple Olympic gold medallist, who split from sprint king Eamon Sullivan on the eve of the Olympics, said her profile made it hard to form relationships and she found it difficult to judge peoples' motives.
"It's hard to tell if people like the idea of (a relationship with Stephanie Rice) or if they really like you," she said. (ANI)
