Lindsey Vonn is having a ridiculous year. Every time she races she breaks her own records: with her 38th downhill victory in Germany two weeks ago, she increased on her own mark as the winningest female alpine racer in a specific discipline, ever. She leads the coveted World Cup overall chase and with 76 World Cup victories, she’s now only 10 shy of Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86.

And then this: Vonn received the body paint treatment in Sports Illustrated‘s coveted swimsuit issue. And is as hot in glossy as she has been on the slopes. But smiling in front of a camera wearing nothing but, well, nothing can’t be easy: “I wasn’t quite sure if I was comfortable at first with body paint, but I said yes,” said Vonn. “Totally normal. Totally normal.” She last appeared in SI‘s annual celebration of wearing less in 2010.

It was a fairly epic week for SI and featuring athletic bodies within its pages. Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson–all of which have different body types–were featured on three different Swimsuit Issue covers, a first for the magazine, not to mention a fairly bold statement. “The three covers celebrate the new SI Swimsuit,” said MJ Day, one of the magazine’s editors. “All three women are beautiful, sexy and strong. Beauty is not a cookie cutter. Beauty is not ‘one size fits all.’ Beauty is all around us and that became especially obvious to me while shooting and editing this year’s issue.”
