"I've been wanting to do SI swim for years," Raisman told ET of appearing in the issue. "I love how they feature beautiful women from all over the world and celebrate how all women are special and unique in their own way."

"Five months after turning heads in #Rio, @Simone_Biles and @Aly_Raisman will make their #SISwim debut!" SI tweeted, along with a video from behind the scenes of the shoot.

"Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today," said SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day. " I love seeing them shine in an entirely different way in the Swimsuit issue and being able to share these gorgeous and powerful images with the world. These women, their beauty, and what they can achieve know no limits."
