Former star United States Olympian Lindsey Vonn is on the list of notable athletes to have posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Vonn, now 36, posed for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue multiple years, most recently in 2019.
The legendary skier has said her favorite memory was the body paint shoot.
“I think the body paint shoot was the craziest shoot I’ve been on. From the 13 hours of painting to running around basically naked…it was a trip! By the end of the shoot I felt so confident I didn’t even realize I was only wearing paint!” she said.
Some of Vonn’s best photos with the magazine have been shared on social media.
