As we’ve previously talked about here, the romantic tale of the 2012 London Olympics has been Team USA basketballer Kobe Bryant and Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice. And it looks like the flirtations are continuing, with the pair today seen enjoying each other’s company at the Olympic cycling event.

The photos, published on show Bryant joking it up with Rice and other Aussies as they watched Anna Meares (Australia) take on Victoria Pendleton (Great Britain) in the velodrome. 

Are we witnessing the beginnings of a new high profile sporting romance?
