Alex Morgan blew up in popularity this past summer with her epic Women’s World Cup run. Now she’s improving on her popularity as the 2012 Olympic Games approach with an appearance in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition.
The once-a-year issue receives a ton of fanfare and the publication has launched the careers of a number of models and given exposure to some extremely beautiful women athletes.
Morgan is no exception and her appearance in a body paint bikini is going to be talked about for a while.
The issue just came out on Valentine’s Day and Morgan appears alongside golfer Natalie Gulbis and swimmer Natalie Coughlin wearing nothing but paint.
