Ellen Hoog and Eva de Goede of the Netherlands women's national field hockey team appeared in the 2013 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. 

Hoog is regarded as one of the best Dutch field hocker players of all time. She finished her career with three Olympic medals - two gold and one silver. 

Even though Hoog's photoshoot with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit was unlike anything she has ever done before, she really enjoyed her time on set.

"It was a great experience and such an honor to be in the Swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated," Hoog said. "I think we enjoyed every minute of the whole shoot."

To this day, Hoog remains a very popular athlete in the Netherlands.
