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.”
