Stephanie Rice Joins 9

Olympic Gold medallist Stephanie Rice   has singed a two year contract with Channel Nine. 

One of Rice’s first roles for the network will be for today  team and will present in-studio segments and reports on her love of health/fitness and cooking, and, sometimes, all three combined.

TODAY Executive Producer Neil Breen says: “We couldn’t be happier to have Steph come on board as a member of the TODAY family – she will be terrific for us and the network.  “It’s not every day you have a multiple Olympic gold medalist join your team. And I don’t think the early mornings will be a problem for her after years in the pool

The athletes name is also being dropped around as a potential name for the third season of Celebrity  Apprentice  which starts filming next week
