“Representing alpine skiing and joining so many amazing athletes who have appeared on the Wheaties box is a great honor,” said Shiffrin. “This has been an unbelievable experience and proves that all of the time, hard work and determination paid off.  I hope that I can be a role model for other young skiers trying to accomplish their goals.”

“I am humbled to represent America and the sport I love on the Wheaties box,” said Kotsenburg. “Standing on top of the podium was a huge honor and words can’t describe how awesome it feels to join the amazing athletes who have come before me as part of the Wheaties legacy.”
