Soccer superstar Alex Morgan covers the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Having appeared in the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue on two separate occasions (including a shoot where she was featured in body paint), Alex Morgan is featured on one of three variant covers for the 2019 edition of the issue, just months before she takes to the pitch with her fellow members of Team USA in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. As a side note, the other models include Tyra Banks and SI Swimsuit rookie Camille Kostek. Becoming only the second athlete to be featured on the cover, Morgan joins UFC legend Ronda Rousey in this exclusive club. Worth noting, mixed martial artist Paige van Zant, gymnast Simone Biles and skiing world champion Lindsey Vonn (who also posed in 2010) are the other athletes featured within this year’s pages.
