Don't you love the term "Bursting with Pride"?
pic from hereI heard a commentator describe Stephanie Rice's parents thusly and it made my heart swell too, so I can just imagine how it would feel for them, after years of support and encouragement and early morning drives to swimming training, to actually see it all pay off.
PS. I hope that she and Eamon Sullivan are just "taking a break" to get the media off their backs for the Olympics. They were so cute together.
