It was reported today that gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles will be featured in the upcoming edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The timing makes sense, as Aly and Simone dominated the competition at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Aly won silver in the all-around and silver in the floor exercise, while Simone won gold in the all-around, gold in the floor exercise, gold in the vault, and bronze in the balance beam. And of course, the ladies won gold medals in the team event, as the “Final Five” prevailed as champions.
Another factor besides their unreal gymnastic abilities that make Aly and Simone perfect fits for Sports Illustrated is that they are both really, really, really, ridiculously good looking. Watch this sexy video from SI, officially announcing Aly and Simone’s presence in their upcoming issue.
I’ve never felt more patriotic in my entire goddamn life. In case you missed something over the course of the video, here is a gallery of some screenshots and a couple official photos from the shoot. Enjoy!
