They stunned the world at the Rio Olympics last Summer, and now Aly Raisman and Simon Biles are back to amaze us. This time, they are no longer in their gymnastic outfits but in sexy bikinis for a feature in the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
The gold-medalists are now ready to take on the modelling world as they strike beautiful poses in front of photographer James Macari. MJ Day, SI Swimsuit Issue Editor is happy to have these two inspiring women in their February Issue.
“Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today.
Women that are not only elite athletes, that are captivating and impressive in their own professional accomplishments…
I love seeing them shine in an entirely different way in the Swimsuit issue and being able to share these gorgeous and powerful images with the world. These women, their beauty, and what they can achieve know no limits.”
The shoot was set around Houston at the World Champions Center where Biles trains, the North Houston Skate Park, and the MFAH’s Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden.
The two showed off their flexible skills in some heart-thumping shots.
