Just over a month ago, the 2022 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hit newsstands with a number of returning veterans.
However, the rookie class might have been just as impressive. Several notable rookie models were chosen to be part of the latest iconic shoot.
Among them was Olivia Ponton, who made her rookie debut in early May. Ponton, with more than 3 million followers on Instagram, is among the most-notable models in the 2022 issue.
Pinned at the top of her Instagram page is a photo from her shoot in Montenegro last year.
Just a few months ago, Ponton learned she'd be a part of the latest edition.
