Social media sensation Paige Spirinac announced on Instagram yesterday that she will be featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 2018.

Rising to fame after a trick-shot act with her college teammates went viral, the American has become one the most recognisable names in the sport, amassing over a million followers on her social media platforms. 

Spirinac is ardent spokeswomen for getting more women into the game and also works with Cybersmile, a nonprofit organisation against cyberbullying, and said that the upcoming photo is about empowering women to love their bodies. 

In a post on Instagram she said; 

''I’m so honoured and humbled to be included in #SISwim 2018! This issue is about self-love, empowering women, body positivity, and encouraging everyone to be kind.''

Women face so much pressure every. single. day. to look, act, and talk a certain way, and it is so difficult trying to figure out what you “can” and “should” be. It’s taken a long time, but I’m proud of my body!
