If the Daily Mail is to be believed than our predication from August 2012 that Nina Agdal would land Sports Illustrated’s 2013 Swimsuit issue cover is correct. The UK based news source is reporting the Danish model whow as named 2012 Swimsuit Rookie of the Year will be the 2013 cover model when it is announced on February 12th.
It is one of the most prestigious jobs in modelling – and a closely guarded secret.
But rumours are swirling that stunning Danish model Nina Agdal has scooped the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
The 20-year-old has already posed for the issue – out on February 12 – and is believed to have beaten off stiff competition from top contenders, Katherine Webb and Derek Jeter’s girlfriend, Hannah Davis, sources tell MailOnline.
A Sports Illustrated spokesman confirmed the Swimsuit issue was out on February 12, but declined to comment on whether Nina was the cover star.

The cover model will be announced on Late Night with David Letterman then Nina will be swept to Las Vegas for a round of parties. Following this the Travel Channel will air a one-hour behind the scenes special that shows the making of the issue.
This year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue promises to be as sexy and as exotic as ever.
And before the magazine arrives (on Feb. 12), the Travel Channel is joining with SI for a one-hour special, Sports Illustrated: The Making of Swimsuit 13 – 7 Continents, 17 Wonders. The show premieres Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and will offer exclusive behind-the-scenes peeks into what went into the globe-trotting shoots.
This year’s swimsuit issue includes the first fashion shoot to take place on the ice-covered terrain in Antarctica. (That couldn’t have been too fun!)
The special also follows the bikini-clad models and photographers as they battle sandstorms in the African dunes and traverse treacherous cliffs in Asia.
“Hands down, this is the most fantastic armchair adventure you can take this winter,” promises Laureen Ong, president of the Travel Channel, in the announcement.
