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.

The Spring hometown hero pointed out that Wheaties has always spotlight athletes who “go above and beyond their sports and also give back to the world.”

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
