Ahead of the 2022 Beijing Olympics, Sports Illustrated is featuring four of Team USA’s strongest female athletes on the cover.

The four covers are available now and feature Mikaela Shiffrin, Jessie Diggins, Erin Jackson and Abby Roque.

One of the most dominant skiers in the history of the sport, Shiffrin will look to medal once again in Beijing after taking home a gold at the 2014 Olympics and a gold and a silver in 2018. The World Cup circuit has seen some triumphs and some missteps as she’s battled all year against rival Petra Vlhova.

Jackson will look to capture gold in speed skating after making the transition from inline just five years ago. She currently is ranked No. 1 in the world in the 500 meter. The issue also covers Diggins’ return to the Olympics after she won Team USA’s first medal in cross-country skiing in 2018. Roque, an up-and-coming hockey superstar, will look to help lead Team USA to back-to-back gold medals at the Olympics.
