Fans of both the United States’ gold medal-winning gymnastics team and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, take heart: Simone Biles and Aly Raisman will be appearing in the magazine’s upcoming issue.

“Aly and Simone represent all that is beautiful and strong and inspiring in women today,” said MJ Day, the Swimsuit issue’s editor, in a statement. “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.”

The issue hits newsstands, mailboxes, and inboxes in February.
