Football season has finally arrived, with Week 1 of the 2021 college football regular season kicking off this weekend, but don’t close the door on summer just yet.
Earlier this summer, the 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue was released. The 2021 issue of the prestigious magazine was a historic one, with three different models getting their own covers. Tennis star Naomi Osaka was among the cover models for the 2021 issue.
Over the years, several notable sports figures have posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Former professional golfer turned sports media personality Paige Spiranac posed for the issue back in 2018.
Some of Spiranac’s top Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue photos have been shared on social media.

Spiranac said posing for the magazine was a dream come true.
“I’ve been a fan for such a long time and I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would get the opportunity to be a part of the SI Swimsuit family. I get chills every time I think about it. So yes, it’s still that hard to believe and I’m still in disbelief!” she told SI Swim.
She’s shared some of her favorite photos on Instagram, as well.
Spiranac is one of several notable athletes to pose for the issue over the years.
