In case you missed it, last month we shared with you a few of the images Sports Illustrated released of Simone Biles in full bikini mode to prepare for the release of the annual Swimsuit Issue. Well, they released the rest of them this week as the actual issue hit stands on Wednesday. And just like Serena Williams’s images for the issue, they are both tasteful and stunning at the same time. And did we mention all the body goals?
Last month, when the original images surfaced, the editor for the swimsuit issue, MJ Day, said it was important to include athletes like Biles and her Final Five teammate Aly Raisman.
“I am thrilled to include the gold medal-winning, U.S. women’s gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles in this year’s Swimsuit issue,” Day said. “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 (lots and lots of Olympic gold medals between them), but strikingly sexy and beautiful in front of photographer James Macari’s lens. 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.”
Amen to that!
Check out the gorgeous shots below (as well as behind-the-scenes video) and a few more of Biles strutting her stuff on the next page.
