Just five months ago, US athletes Aly Raisman and Simone Biles took home gold at the Rio Olympics. Now, in 2017, they’re setting pulses racing all over again.

The gymnasts were amongst the most successful competitors at last year’s games, and now they’re making headlines off the field by taking part in a stunning Sports Illustrated shoot.

Some of the biggest names in fashion, Ashley Graham, Gigi Hadid and Kate Upton included, have appeared in the magazine’s famous Swimwear Issue, and now there are two new names to add the star-studded list.

Aly, 22, and Simone, 19, look incredible in the new shoot for the magazine, which sees them bare their world-beating physiques in nothing but skimpy bikinis.

They might be more used to wearing leotards while performing, but the pair looked perfectly at home in the elegant shoot’s photos.

As well as some of the world’s biggest models, the magazine has welcomed the likes of UFC star Ronda Rousey and tennis player Caroline Wozniacki in recent times, and Aly and Simone are the latest sports stars to appear in the iconic publication.

Despite only being in their teens and early twenties, the pair are among the most successful gymnasts in US Olympic history.

Aly was part of the women’s gymnastics team that took home gold in London in 2012. She also won hold in the floor competition that year, before taking home the team gold at Rio last year.

Simone was the golden girl of the US team in Rio, taking home gold medals in the individual all-around, vault, and floor categories. 

Look out for the pair in the Sports Illustrated Swimwear Issue later this year.
