Sports Illustrated

Olympics 2016 in Rio was a gold shower for American women gymnastic team. In Rio, Gymnasts Simone Biles had claimed a team gold, as well as individual golds in the vault and all-around. Also, she won bronze on balance beam competition.

Aly Raisman had won silver medals in the individual all-around competition and individual floor exercise.

Coming back to the present, Both Gymnasts, for a change, have stripped down their glittering ‘leotards’ suits for the swimsuits. The two Olympic stars are posing for Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit 2017 edition.

SI announced Tuesday that Biles and Raisman were photographed by James Macari at the World Champions Center (TX), the North Houston Skate Park, and at the museum Lillie and Hugh Roy Cullen Sculpture Garden.
