Chloe Kim has been all smiles since the very beginning of her journey to gold medal stardom at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, and for good reason. Kim hasn’t even hit her 18th birthday yet and she’s already become the youngest American woman ever to win a snowboarding medal at the Olympics.
Add that to her four X-Games golds and she’s already on pace to be one of the most decorated female snowboarders of all time. Toss in her youthful exuberance, natural charm and excellent social media presence and you’ve got the future face of extreme winter sports — and the current face of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.
Kim is back in the U.S. and stopped by to talk with the equally ebullient Jimmy Fallon about her historic success on the snowboarding halfpipe in South Korea. Before she left, he revealed that Kellogg’s has made her the latest athlete to appear on their Corn Flakes cereal boxes – and she seemed pretty stoked.

Other Olympians who have previously been featured on the Corn Flakes box include swimming legend Michael Phelps and gold medalist gymnast Gabby Douglas. Not a bad way to kick things off for a 17-year-old, especially considering she’s set all of her current endorsements to expire as soon as she turns 18.
