Sara Sampaio is the first-ever Portuguese model to appear in the SI Swimsuit Issue, and now thanks to your voracious voting, she's the SI Swimsuit 2014 Rookie of the Year. That is no small feat considering the epic class we had this year, so make sure to reach out and send her some props for this huge honor!

Parabéns, Sara!
