In honor of the upcoming 2016 Rio Olympics, Adriana Lima is gracing the cover of her home country's Vogue edition. 

E! News has the exclusive first look at the photo spread featured within the pages of Vogue Brazil's August 2016 issue, which sees the supermodel putting her own high-fashion spin on the art of athleticism. Lima stuns on the mag's cover, sporting a sophisticated wool coat and equally as chic leather wristwatch. 

And while the Victoria's Secret angel looks rather buttoned up at first glance, an inside look at the issue reveals a much more rugged (albeit stunning!) version of the star. 

An additional image pictures a piercing Adriana in the boxing ring surrounded by local fighters and a coach. She's equally as sporty as she is glam, rocking a pair of sequined pants and bomber jacket. Adriana continues the trend for another snapshot in neon color-block fitness gear and a midi-skirt. 

Lima traveled to a Rio-based gym for the shoot, where she supported the Fight For Peace project—an organization that combines martial arts with education to mitigate crime and violence plaguing young people in the area. 

Of her latest cover shoot, the 35-year-old tells E! News, "I'm so incredibly honored and moved to be featured on the cover of Vogue Brazil during such a historic time in my native country."

"Not only was this shoot a memorable career moment for me, but I was also given the opportunity to raise awareness for Fight for Peace, an organization that benefits underprivileged youths in Rio," she added.
