Meryl Davis and Charlie White made American Olympic history with a record-breaking performance in the ice dance finals in Sochi on Monday. The duo from Michigan pulled out a combined score of 195.52 to secure the first gold medal in ice dance for the United States.
Kellogg’s certainly thought so.
Davis and White will be featured on a special-edition box of Corn Flakes beginning on Feb. 24. Only 1,000 boxes will be produced.
"We're so proud of Meryl and Charlie – their great start together on an ice rink in Michigan has truly led to great things," said Noel Geoffroy, senior vice president, Marketing & Innovation for Kellogg U.S. Morning Foods. "Over the course of the last few days, we have all watched Meryl and Charlie wow the world with their incredible ice dancing prowess. As has become the tradition, we at Kellogg wanted to show our support by capturing the image of their historic win on the front of Corn Flakes boxes."
Davis and White aren't the first Olympians in Sochi to grace the Corn Flakes cereal box. Freeskiers Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper, the three U.S. men who swept the podium in the men's inaugural ski slopestyle competition, were on the box last week.
