Just because you’re an Olympian doesn’t mean that you’re immune to being star-struck. As the games creep closer and more and more athletes make their way to their quarters in the Olympic Village some athletes, stars in their own right, find themselves eager to meet the even bigger names around them.
Australian star swimmer (and Slanch crush—see here, here, here, here and here) Stephanie Rice is no exception to this; despite holding five world records and being one of swimming’s biggest stars she still gets excited to get a photo with someone even more famous, like Kobe Bryant.
I just hope that’s the LAST contact between the two. She’s way too good for Kobe.
