We’ve run out of words to describe how amazing Serena Williams is. Thankfully, her latest accomplishment speaks for itself.
Today Williams revealed her own Wheaties box, following in the footsteps of Althea Gibson by becoming the second Black woman tennis player to cover the cereal known as “The Breakfast of Champions.”
In a statement released on General Mills’ blog, Williams shared what the Wheaties box means to her.
“I have dreamt of this since I was a young woman and it’s an honor to join the ranks of some of America’s most decorated athletes. I hope my image on this iconic orange box will inspire the next generation of girls and athletes to dream big,” she said.
Wheaties announced the new cover on their Instagram account with the hashtag #ShesAChampion and we agree. You can grab the limited-edition box in the U.S. over the next month.
