With 32 Olympic and World Championship medals under her belt, Simone Biles has now achieved another sports milestone: She’ll be the face of Wheaties’ 100th anniversary cereal box.
Biles’ cover will be the final design in Wheaties’ Century Series collection, which has already featured Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali. Biles’ cover captures her focus on the beam as the decorated Olympian does a split jump, and her signature graces the box.
After Wheaties announced that Biles would be joining the Century Series collection, she quickly took to Instagram to share her excitement.
“I’m thrilled to be on the third and final box in this series, proudly representing today’s athletes in what it means to be a Wheaties champion,” said Biles in the video .
Biles was the poster girl for the last Olympics — not for her gymnastics, but for her speaking out on prioritizing her mental health. Pushing past the negativity, Biles took control of her own mental health, in part by using the app Cerebral, which she is now the chief impact officer of.
“She’s a joyful and passionate person who works to inspire others to be the best version of themselves no matter their life experiences. She uses her platform to advocate for mental health reform and vigorously campaigns in support of efforts to provide education and assistance to children in the adoption and foster care systems.” said Wheaties on its website.
Biles box will be available nationwide this month. While there is no set date, you can register to get first access to the collectors edition at Wheaties.com.
