Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott joins Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn on Wheaties box

Wheaties cereal really is the breakfast of champions. First, General Mills announced that World Champion and Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn would grace the ubiquitous celebratory orange box, and now it’s been revealed that snowboarding gold medalists Seth Wescott and Shaun White will also get their own versions. They should, too. Both Wescott and White have claimed Olympic gold for the second time in a row, and both are revolutionary forces in their respective sports–leading the way for others and breaking new ground.

These Wheaties boxes are almost as special as the athletes who are gracing them, too. Vonn will be the first female alpine skier to appear on a box, and White and Wescott are the first snowboarders to do the same. Pretty huge–just like their recent stellar Olympic performances.
