Phelps On The Cover Of SI

The Sports Illustrated Group announced that today’s Sports Illustrated cover featuring Phelps wearing all eight of his 2008 Olympic gold medals will be commissioned as a poster. The poster is a first for the magazine.

“I have spoken at length about my desires to help grow the sport of swimming, and I am truly honored that Sports Illustrated has chosen to create this commemorative poster for fans across the U.S. and around the world,” Phelps said.

The poster will be available beginning today at retail partner Fine Art Limited (www.fineartlimited.com) or by calling 800-544-5239. Posters will be 13 inches by 18 inches ($15) and 18 inches by 24 inches ($19.95). Previously, Sports Illustrated had published posters featuring iconic images from the pages of the magazine, but never a cover for mass distribution.
