Alex Morgan of the United States women's national team is one of several notable athletes to participate in a Sports Illustrated Photoshoot. 

In 2012, Morgan made her SI Swim debut. She wore nothing but body paint for her first photoshoot.

Morgan also appeared on the cover of the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. 

Morgan wasn't the only notable American from the soccer world to collaborate with SI Swim. 

Bethany Dempsey, the wife of former USMNT star Clint Dempsey, also posed for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. 

Dempsey's photoshoot in 2010 was part of the "Body Paint" series. 

Dempsey had a United States jersey painted on her for the 2010 photoshoot. It was a clever idea from SI Swim's makeup team.
