(NEW YORK) -- Gabby Douglas made history Thursday when she edged out her competition to win the most coveted title in all of women's gymnastics – a gold medal in the women's individual all-around competition – and a gold medal in the team competition.
Now the 16-year-old Virginia Beach, Va., native will be honored like so many champions before her – with her photo emblazoned on a cereal box.
Kellogg’s said Friday that Douglas will be featured on special-edition boxes of Corn Flakes, scheduled to hit store shelves this fall.
"I'm so proud to be part of this gold-medal winning team and I'm thrilled I was able to bring home the all-around gold for Team USA as well," Douglas said in a press release.
The champion gymnast has already received praise from the likes of President Obama and Oprah Winfrey, who posted on Twitter Thursday, "OMG I'm so THRILLED for Gabby. Flowing happy tears!!"
Kellogg is a sponsor of the United States Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics.
