Danica Patrick joined the list of notable athletes to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue back in 2008. The race car driver posed for the magazine again in 2009.
“I had so much fun. It was a great experience and I loved it completely. Like, I wish I was a swimsuit model because it was really fun,” Patrick told Sports Illustrated of her experience.
She added: “You could actually say I was on the cover. I had a little image in the top right corner of the cover. I think Bar Refaeli was the cover girl that year.”
Patrick is one of several notable athletes to have posed for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Alex Morgan, Genie Bouchard, Lindsey Vonn, Paige Spiranac and Maria Sharapova, among others, have all posed for the issue.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shared a behind-the-scenes look at Patrick’s shoot for the 2009 edition of the magazine, as well.
The 2021 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, meanwhile, hit newsstands earlier this summer. This year’s issue features another notable athlete, as tennis superstar Naomi Osaka is on one of the covers of the magazine.
