A Minnesota two-fer: Golden Valley-based General Mills says Buck Hill veteran Lindsey Vonn will be one of three Olympic gold medalists featured on the upcoming edition the Wheaties box, along with snowboarder Shaun White, of California, and snowboard cross athlete Seth Wescot, of Maine.
Despite a debilitating bruised shin, Vonn took the gold in the Olympic downhill this year. She's the first American woman ever to do so.
This marks yet another major debut for Vonn in 2010. In February, Sports Illustrated featured her in its annual Swimsuit Edition. Vonn appeared aside three other members of the U.S. winter Olympic Games ski team in a red bikini that left very little to the imagination.
