World Cup champs Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan sizzle in swimsuit photoshoot showing off their rock hard abs after epic win
US soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe continues to win hearts on the internet. After leading her team to become the new world champs, Rapinoe is now making the internet swoon with her fabulous modeling skills as she posed with her longtime colleague Alex Morgan for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. The 30-year-old Morgan and 34-year-old Rapinoe, who co-captained this year's USWNT team and led them to victory on July 7 at the FIFA Women's World Cup, rocked the magazine's pages just as much as they rocked the field.
In shots shared on the magazine's official Instagram handle, the two can be seen having a gala time at the beach shooting with golden soccer balls and itty bitty bikinis, showing off their rock hard washboard abs. MJ Day, Editor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit also shared some powerful images from the series. In one picture, Rapinoe is holding out her fists in a white bikini, with her signature pink hair blond and showing off a seriously fit beach body.
"Cheering for the #USWNTtoday and every day," Day wrote as a caption, "Not just for what they represent on the field but what they represent for women. Period. Fighting to win not only a soccer game but a lot of other pretty fking important stuff as well. Keep kicking ass ladies." In another pic, Rapinoe is seen showing off the middle finger to the camera, in a nude tankini with the sunset behind her.
Morgan, who is seen a blue two-piece bikini in one shot and an array of stylish beach babe wardrobe choices in others looking totally au naturale, letting her long dark hair down and sporting a truly winning smile. In one shot, she is seen balancing a ball on one hand while staring at the camera showcasing her toned arms and legs.
In another post, Day gushed about the girls and said that she couldn't bring herself to post something prior to the game because she "didn’t want to jinx it," she wrote. "Alex, We have been friends for years and Megan, Crystal and Abby I fell in love with you guys on our shoot. I feel so connected to you all as humans, as a woman and as a FAN," she said.
Rapinoe is the first openly gay woman to pose for Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue.
