Simone Biles and Aly Raisman are trading in their leotards for bikinis! On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated announced via Twitter that the Olympic Gold medalists would be featured in their upcoming Swimsuit Issue.

Five months after turning heads in #Rio, @simoneBiles and @alyRaisman will make their #SISwim debut!

The publication teased two images with its announcement — one of Raisman, a three-time gold medalist, in a sexy black bikini and the other of Biles, a four-time gold medalist, doing a classic gymnastics pose in a black print bikini.

“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,” said MJ Day, SI Swimsuit editor. “Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today.

But while the ladies clearly have insane bodies, they still have their fair share of haters. HipHollywood caught up with Raisman at the Golden Globes after-party on Sunday and she revealed how she deals with the negativity. “I’m very sensitive, so I’ve been trying to put my phone down now and just focus on the positive.”

Biles, 19, recently had to shut down some body shamers who came for her after she posted a photo on social media. “You all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it’s MY body. I love it & I’m comfortable in my skin,” she tweeted.

“Simone is so tiny, she’s so incredibly fit,” Raisman said in shock over the mean words written about her Olympic teammate. “You just can’t please everyone all the time.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
