United States women’s national team star Abby Dahlkemper was among several notable athletes to pose for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Dahlkemper, a 26-year-old defender for Team USA, was one of four players to pose for this year’s issue.
Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Crystal Dunn also posed for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Dahlkemper said she was “shocked” when she got the call.
“I was kind of in disbelief because Sports Illustrated is such an iconic magazine to be a part of. I was just shocked… and honored and I was really excited about the opportunity to have people get to know me off the field and not in soccer clothes,” she told SI.com.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit continues to rave about her work.
