Stephanie Rice Supports India in ICC Champions Trophy

Triple Olympic champion Stephanie Rice will support India in the ICC Champions Trophy apart from her home country Australia. "I have to say India because I love the country so much. I know Australia and India have a huge rivalry," Rice told NDTV when asked which other country she would support in the tournament apart from Australia. Though the swimming champion has never tried her hand at cricket, the Beijing Games triple gold medallist feels rivalries are healthy for sport. "Sometimes people take it too far but at the same time when you're competing against someone better than you, it only drives you to be better than them. That rivalry and competitiveness is important for the sport to grow and get better. That's why you see in almost every Olympics World Records get broken," Rice added.
