Like we needed another reason to get a spray tan, the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition hits newsstands today. On the cover is 24-year-old Danielle Herrington, who is the third black woman to ever be featured on the cover of the annual publication. She’s in good company following Tyra Banks and Beyoncé. Also featured in the issue, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, tennis players Sloane Stephens and Eugenie Bouchard and para snowboarder Brenna Huckaby.
Shaun White has a flair for the dramatics. He wanted to go last so he could size up the competition and he needed an almost perfect score on his last run to win gold.

His medal was also the 100th gold medal for Team U.S.A. in the history of the Winter Olympics.
The pint-sized, fluffy Bichon Frise named Flynn (aka GCHP CH Belle Creek’s All I Care About Is Love), took home the Westminster Kennel Club’s 'best in show' title. Flynn will now take the obligatory victory lap which includes press appearances, a trip to the top of the Freedom Tower and lunch at famed New York City eatery Sardi’s before retiring. He certainly went out on top.
