Celebrity News And Gossip: Serena Williams Becomes Second Black Woman Tennis Player To Get A Wheaties Box

To say that Serena Williams has had an accomplished career is only stating the obvious. Yesterday, she showed off her Wheaties box on her Instagram page and has now become the second Black woman tennis player to cover the cereal known as “The Breakfast of Champions” following in the footsteps of Althea Gibson.

 

 

Williams epitomizes what it means to be a champion on and off the court being a four-time Olympic gold medalist and the winner of 72 career titles. Also, in addition to being an entrepreneur, fashion designer and advocate for equality, she has championed others who are following in her footsteps in tennis as well as the next generation of women entrepreneurs.

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
