Sydney: Triple Olympic champion Stephanie Rice has said that she is still pondering upon her decision to make a comeback in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Rice has been eyeing the 100m butterfly and 100m freestyle at Glasgow for an extended period.

Two weeks after confirming a comeback attempt, Rice said that opportunities in business and her previous shoulder injury is keeping her from contesting the 400m individual medley and take up swimming again at the Glasgow event.

Rice regretted that she has not fully recovered from the shoulder injury, unsure whether or not she should consider her future at the pool, after an extended lapse.

Stating that her comeback depends on whether she can handle swimming 60 km a week, Rice said that she is yet to begin training in the pool after taking a post-London Olympic sabbatical, even as she is preparing to launch her own swimwear range.
