United States Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles will appear in the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The two gymnasts achieved success at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, collecting seven medals between the two of them. Their performances put them in the national spotlight and now the stunning athletes are continuing their hot-streak for the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

“Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today,” SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day said of the Olympians. “Women that are not only elite athletes, that are captivating and impressive in their own professional accomplishments (lots and lots of Olympic gold medals between them), but strikingly sexy and beautiful in front of photographer James Macari’s lens.”

“I love seeing them shine in an entirely different way in the Swimsuit issue and being able to share these gorgeous and powerful images with the world,” Day gushed over the girls. “These women, their beauty, and what they can achieve know no limits.”

Aly and Simone are certainly pushing the limits in this Sports Illustrated shoot, and they’re leaving the leotards behind.
