Stephanie Rice is a three time gold medalist for the Australian swim team. She's caught some heat for tweeting a racy pic of her in a swimsuit. Wait, what?

Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice is in a very odd position. She tweeted a picture of a birthday present sent to her by designer Ellie Gonsalves.  Apparently that upset some people. Not sure why, since she spends most of her time in swimsuits in the first place.

I mean, how dare this gorgeous, fit athlete tweet a pic of herself in a bikini. No one has ever done that before. What was she thinking? It's not like millions of people have already seen her in a bathing suit before. The audacity.

Seriously though, Australia needs to lighten up. If Stephanie wants to tweet more photos like this in the future, please feel free.
