We can stop the countdown for the South African Swimsuit edition because, as of today, it’s finally been released. We had already seen some behind-the-scenes photos and even a few teasers but the final product is absolutely incredible. We can’t thank SA Rugby and SA Cricket Magazines enough for saving what used to be the Sports Illustrated South African Swimsuit Edition from certain demise after the SA Sports Illustrated offices were shut down. So yes, we said it. Hooray for cricket.
What’s even better is that in addition to keeping one of our favorite publications alive, they managed to bring back some (not so) old favorites like Xenia Deli, Genevieve Morton (who nailed the cover), and Catrinel Menghia while still impressing us with native South African rookies like Careen Truter.
Their website has been churning out stuff left and right, including some awesome video content, so we suggest that you check them out before the day’s done. In the meantime, though, here’s a sneak peek of how hot the heat is down in South Africa.
