Phelps won’t be on Wheaties box
When writing an authoritative column it is best to check facts to ensure accuracy.
Braunholtz states “The Wheaties executives must hope I’ll feel a similar pride while eating from a cereal box celebrating … (Michael Phelps’) achievements” in his column “That Olympic pride” published in the Vail Daily on Aug. 22.
The fact is, Phelps has decided to pass on the Wheaties box offer; instead he will appear on Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes or Corn Flakes boxes.
Doubtful that Wheaties executives will be happy when any of us purchase a Phelps commemorative box of Kellogg’s products.
