30 Hottest Sports Illustrated Models Celebrate Its 60th Anniversary


30 Sexiest Sports Illustrated Models for the Magazine's 60th Birthday1

This Saturday, August 16th marks the 60th Anniversary of the first issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine. A lot has changed in the worlds of sports and magazines, but one thing that’s remained a staple throughout those years is Sports Illustrated.

Their coverage of stories like breaking Lebron’s return to the Cavaliers is just one example of how they’ve stayed in the game, but we’d be remiss not to mention the models of The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (which celebrated its 50th Anniversary this year) who have also helped to keep the publication culturally significant.

Landing on the cover of an issue of Sports Illustrated is the dream of young athletes everywhere. Similarly, the biggest thing a swimsuit model can do is be on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The SI Swimsuit Issue has served as the launch pad for a lot of the industry’s most popular women, from women like Cheryl Teigs to Kate Upton.

In order to fully understand the impact Sports Illustrated and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue have had on entertainment, let’s take a look at the hottest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models ever.
