To spend time on a long-winded writeup for this post and pretend that most of you will even read it is almost futile. But, I’m willing to take the gamble. Sports Illustrated has unveiled the official imagery to its 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Stocked full of high quality imagery of models and athletes from across the globe, the issue will highlight seven continents touching down in Australia, Chile, China, Spain, Las Vegas and Namibia as the backdrop for its 21 models. Having first made substantial chatter when she covered last year’s edition, the 2013 edition will see a return from Kate Upton in Antarctica. In total, the edition spotlights 17 swimsuit models and four world-class athletes.
