Lindsey Vonn sizzles in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit for the third time: ‘It feels incredible’

Lindsey Vonn is gracing the pages of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, where she traded in her skis for a skimpy bikini.

The retired Olympian admitted that “it feels incredible” to make heads turn on the beach after making her mark on the slopes.

However, Vonn shared her all-time favorite memory striking a pose for the mag wasn’t for this year’s coveted issue. In fact, she recalled going completely bare in body paint and not much else for the 2016 spread.

And life for the champion is pretty good these days. Earlier this year, Vonn announced she was retiring from ski racing after the world championships in Sweden, which took place Feb. 10.

Vonn, an all-time leader in World Cup wins with 82, originally had planned to retire in December. However, her ailing knees have contributed to her decision to retire sooner than planned.

In addition to her World Cup accomplishments, Vonn won a gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Vancouver Games. She also won two gold medals in the 2009 World Championships in France.
