Stefanie Rice wants to to be the new Michael Phelps

I wish it was an American woman that was this ambitious but since one hasn't stepped up, I am elated to see Stephanie Rice try.

From the Australian Olympic Committee website:
"... There will be no Olympic hangover for Australian golden girl Stephanie Rice with the triple gold medallist to contest seven individual events over six days of the world championship trials in March.

The Olympic 200m and 400m individual medley champion will contest both her pet events at the Sydney trials along with the 200m freestyle, 100m butterfly, 200m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 100m freestyle...."
