  1. I didn't know that. Thanks for the pic. She's charming, even in that provocative pose.

  2. Provocative, but PG-13 rated. Sports Illustrated won't go beyond that. (It ain't Maxim, y'know.)

  3. I can remember when this was first published. It was right before the 1972 Munich Olympics where she was expected to win all the gold medals. This caused a lot of controversy and led to her not winning any medals (Olga Korbut got the medals and the publicity). Cathy survived and moved on with her life. I got the magazine as part of an annual gift subscription-I didn't have the magazine confiscated (likewise, the swimsuit issues). There was some shock at seeing a nude photo in Sports Illustrated but everything seemed to blow over and life went on for everybody.
