Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky, Simone Biles on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated'

This marks the 11th SI cover for Phelps.

That is a lot of gold.

U.S. Olympic champs Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles appear together on the next issue of Sports Illustrated

The two record-breaking swimmers and powerhouse, record-tying gymnast will display the numerous medals they won in Rio: six for Phelps, five for Ledecky and five for Biles, who'll appear on SI with three as the shoot took place before she won her fourth medal.

Biles is still in her uniform in the photo because she had won gold in vault right before the photo shoot. 

This marks the 11th SI cover for Phelps, who first appeared on the magazine's cover before the Athens Games in 2004.

All three athletes are profiled in the upcoming issue.
