BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS
Houston's Simone Biles gracefully lands iconic cereal box cover
Houston’s Greatest of All Time can now add cereal box cover model to her already gravity-defying resume. Simone Biles will grace the cover of Wheaties boxes, the four-time Olympic gold medalist announced on social media.
Noting that she’s joining a “very unique club,” Biles told her fans in a video that she’s joining fellow sports icons Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan on the boxes, as part of the brand’s Century Collection series.
“Growing up, I looked up to Dominique Dawes and Serena Williams,” Biles told her 6.8 million Instagram followers, citing the pioneering Olympic gymnast known as “Awesome Dawesome” and fellow Black sports superstar and tennis champion.
Wheaties, in turn, called Biles a “true champion” and “legend” and informed fans that the boxes will be available nationwide later this month.
