She may not be the 2012 cover girl, but Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli is back in this year’s edition of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

Three months ago it was reported that Refaeli and Israeli supermodel Esti Ginsburg would not be appearing in the print edition of the magazine’s most popular issue—but apparently plans have changed.

While Ginsburg will appear only in the swimsuit calendar, Refaeli will be featured in a special segment titled Bar & the Boys, where she poses with NBA star Chris Paul, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps and Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal.

Perhaps the editors thought that letting Refaeli hang out with three half-naked athletes would make her feel better after she lost the cover to 19-year-old Kate Upton.
