3 Time Olympian gold medalist, Mentor, Entrepreneur and Speaker
Living by the motto, Be the Best You Can Be, Stephanie Rice, the three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Swimmer, Mentor and Entrepreneur, knows what it takes to reach the top.
Stephanie has always set big goals. From a young age she knew she was special. Then at 8 years old she saw Susie ‘O’Neill win the 200 Butterfly at the 1996 Atlanta Games and that’s where the dream to become an Olympic Swimmer kicked in. She always loved swimming and was inspired by Susie, but never idolized her, as she always wanted to do things in her own unique, cool way.
The talented swimmer first caught the World’s attention in 2006, when at 17 years of age, she won gold in the 200 and 400 Individual Medley at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. She then went on to become one of Australia’s greatest ever Olympians, winning three Gold Medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, all in World Record breaking time.
Rice was awarded “Female Swimmer of the Meet” at the Beijing Olympics, alongside Michael Phelps, and later received the prestigious “Order of Australia Medal”.
Rice announced her retirement from the sport in 2013 at the age of 24. She then went on to win the high rating Australian TV show ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ that same year, making her the youngest winner of the show worldwide.
Stephanie hasn’t stopped dreaming big and working hard to make her dreams a reality. The entrepreneur has created 3 online programs in health, mindset & swimming. She is an ambassador for a number of well-known international brands such as Unichi & Vegie Delights as has worked with global companies like Fitness First, Khloe Kardashian’s, Good American & with TV with Start Sports India for the Rio Olympics and Pro Kabaddi League.
Her passion now is to share her wealth of knowledge & insights in order to positively impact other people’s lives & inspire them to be the best they can be. She does this through her mentoring programs, speaking engagements, social media and now her work in India.
Stephanie believes the secret to long-term success and inner fulfilment is to create opportunities for others that would have perfectly served you. So with this, she is stepping back into the world of swimming, and has taken on a massive project to assist in building and running successful Learn-To-Swim programs throughout India, as well as developing and running the “Stephanie Rice Elite Academy” in India, with the goal to produce India’s very first Olympic Swimming Medalist in 8-12 year’s time.
