VIBE / August 3, 2012

Almost immediately after Olympic women’s gymnastics all-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas embraced her new alias as “Golden Gabby,” Kellogg’s announced that she’d be next to appear on the cover of a Corn Flakes box.

Kellogg’s, an official U.S. Olympic Committee sponsor, released a teaser image of what the new special edition covers will look like once they hit shelves in the fall.

“The support from fans around the country has been amazing,” Douglas said in a statement, “and it’s a huge honor to see ourselves on a cereal box that our fans can all own and enjoy!”

This will be one of many promo materials for the 16-year-old record breaker.

“My name is definitely in the history books,” Douglas told NBC Chicago. “I’ve made it. I can check it off my bucket list.”
