Cambage rejects reports of Rice swipe
13:11 AEST Thu Aug 9 2012

Opals star Liz Cambage has laughed off suggestions she took a swipe at swimmer Stephanie Rice over her purported fling with married US basketballer Kobe Bryant.

Speculation has run rampant that Rice and Bryant have drummed up a romance during their time in London, with the pair spotted together at at least two Olympic events.

The rumours went into overdrive when Cambage appeared to pass comment on their alleged relationship.

"I love how Kobe has his wife with him at the Olympics, yet still surrounded by groupies!!!" Cambage tweeted on Wednesday.

"Some women need to get a grip, ASAP!"

But the 20-year-old on Thursday hit back at claims the comments were directed at her compatriot Rice.

"LOL media makes me laugh, I never named anyone? LETS GO BOOMERS, goodnight everyone xxx."

Cambage made global headlines after a rare Olympic slam-dunk in the Opals' quarter-final victory over China.

She became a hot topic on Twitter and even got a nod from American basketball star Kevin Durant.

"@ecambage ok I see u with the nice one hand jam!! Congrats on the win" he tweeted.

Averaging more than 14 points and six rebounds per game at the Olympics, Cambage has been a standout during the Opals' campaign.

The Opals face reigning gold medallists the US in the semi-finals in the early hours of Friday morning (AEST).
