For the average person, Friday is a good day and signals the end of the work week. This Friday, however, should be a good day for all people. Friday morning’s edition of S.I. Hot Clicks revealed some tremendous news that should give us all something to look forward to. U.S. Women’s soccer star Alex Morgan is featured in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which comes out Feb. 14. You know the body paint section we’ve all grown to love over the years? Yeah, she’s doing that. Here is a preview:
Several months ago Morgan said all the attention she had been receiving was a “little weird.” One Twitter avatar featuring her six pack abs and a Swimsuit Issue later, and I’d say she’s doing just fine in the spotlight.
“Initially I was a little nervous, but this opportunity doesn’t come everyday,” Morgan explained. “I wanted to involve my family with my decision and it helped that they were very supportive. After the initial reaction of nerves, I was so excited to start shooting, and honored to be included with such an amazing group of athletes and models.”
She also added that if males were to appear in the Swimsuit Issue she would want to see Blake Griffin, Rafael Nadal, or C.J. Wilson. If they won’t do it, I will.
