Melbourne, Jan 8 (ANI): Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice has put all her partying ways behind and thrown herself into training for national selection trials in eight weeks.
The 20-year-old Olympic winner was seen partying at the Paris Hiltons New Year Eve bash and was later seen letting her hair down at the 21st birthday bash for fellow swimmer Kenrick Monkat The Eastern in Bondi Junction.
According to sources, Monks birthday bash was simply a case of the fellow swimmers enjoying one of their last opportunities to party before throwing themselves into training, reports the Daily Telegraph.
“It was a swimmers” party and it was the chance for a lot of those swimmers to have one of their last night’’s out,”” said the source.
The source also denied claims that Rice had to be carried out of the venue after a night of partying, insisting it is “terribly false””.

“She wasn”t drunk and just loves to dance and it was great to see her letting her hair down, the partygoer added. (ANI)
