United States soccer star Alex Morgan landed one of three covers of the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) captain joins Tyra Banks and Camille Kostek on the cover of this year’s issue ahead of the FIFA World Cup. Morgan first appeared in the 2012 issue in body paint, before returning in 2014. Now, she appears for the third time following a photoshoot in St. Lucia.
“Although she is a team player in every sense of the word, Alex Morgan is so much more than just an elite athlete,” said SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day in a press release. “From winning a World Cup, to fighting for fair and equal compensation for women, along with the rest of the US Women’s soccer team, she represents all that is confident, strong and beautiful.”
Morgan is poised to compete in her third World Cup this summer.
Here is the cover:
Sports Illustrated also shared a video of Morgan learning the news.
