Nastia Liukin: Peep My Wheaties Box!

Nastia Liukin: Peep My Wheaties Box!

America’s newest sweetheart, Nastia Liukin, is featured on the latest special-edition Wheaties box. The 18-year-old Olympics champ follows in the footsteps of fellow all-around gymnast champions Mary Lou Retton and Carly Patterson by joining the Breakfast of Champions family.

“Every young athlete aspires to one day see their face on the cover of the Wheaties box,” Nastia said. “It’s been a huge inspiration to see great gymnastics champions on the box, like Mary Lou and Carly, plus the ‘Magnificent Seven’ from 1996. It’s a privilege and an honor for me to be on the box, and I’m very excited to be part of the Wheaties tradition.”

Nastia credits hard work and determination for her success. “I tell young athletes all the time that if you want to become a champion, you need to stay focused, train hard, and pay attention to what you eat,” she says.
