Oh I so agree.

 

The horrors of a woman's body looking like a woman's body! Of course she doesnt look like she did at 16.

 

Go Liesel. Thank goodness we still choose our team based on their swim times not their sex appeal.

Totally agree.

 

The media's treatment of her is absolutely appalling. :rant:

It's the Australian media to blame here.

 

I hate to name channels but Channel 7 gives me the sh*ts honestly, Sunrise in particular.

Hell yes. Today's SMH/Age article on her was shocking- Grrr. Many of the comments were great though.

I hope she goes there and has a great time. I don't care if she wins at all ! One news report said she was going only to party (or some such thing) as it will be her last. I say go for it - treat it like one huge party.

 

If anyone deserves to do it she does :) I'm sure all that training and actually making the team (I'm assuming she had to get a certain time or win in the lead up to the games) has nothing to do with her being selected.

Forgive me if I am wrong but I always thought participating in the olympics was about your sporting ability, not what you look like in a bathing suit.

Didn't know there were fat swimmers on the swim team...?

Yep go Liesel! She is competing in swimming at the olympics ffs not the swimsuit section of the Miss Universe pageant, they have NO right to comment on her figure. They need to STFU and leave the woman alone.

There were NO media articles or interviews or documentaries about this being her FOURTH olympics, something no one has done before. NONE.

 

Its a sad sad world that her only media attention after training for 20 yrs, winning 8 gold medals, being one of the most elite athletes in the country, is that she has a tummy.

 

**** YOU Australian media.

Oh I really hope she does too. At least most of her fellow Olympians and the general public are supportive. Last thing she needs right now whilst gearing up for the Olympics is all this negative press about her body from her own Country!

 

Stupid thing is she has never had a stereotypical swimmer's body- yet it has served her (and us) pretty well so far!

 

Channel 7 is really starting to p*ss me off with all the underhanded things I have read about them doing lately :angry:
