Swimmers diving into poolFollowing British Olympic swimming star Rebecca Adlington announcing that she had undergone Rhinoplasty surgery, another star of the pool this time from Australia has made a similar confession. The swimmer in question is former Olympian Stephanie Rice, who won a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing games and her revelation has, for once, been welcomed by social media commentators, who have shone praise for her openness, and for a "beautiful cover" on Australian gossip magazine Who, for an article in which Rice explained her reasons for choosing to have Cosmetic Surgery. Rice told the magazine she was delighted with her Rhinoplasty, saying: "Seeing the better version of my nose made me realise how much it had been affecting me."And she added: "Everyone will have an opinion, and what I've learnt over the years is that you can't do things to please people. I love the result." Rice, who confessed that she once broke her nose while swimming, has now retired from the pool, and is forging a new career in the media. She recently featured in the country's Celebrity Apprentice reality show.
