Serena Williams will be the next athlete to adorn the cover of Wheaties iconic orange box.
With a total of 23 grand slam singles titles and 14 grand slam doubles titles, Williams has established herself as one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
In addition to her professional achievements, Williams also represented the US in Sydney, Beijing, London and Rio and earned four gold medals in both singles and doubles play.
“I am so excited to be on the cover of the next Wheaties box,” Williams said in a prepared statement. “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.”
Outside the tennis court, Williams is a staunch advocate for equality as she fights for the causes she believes in, with a focus on gender and racial equality.
Williams limited-edition Wheaties Box will debut nationally in the next several weeks.
