Don’t look for Gabby Douglas on a Wheaties box
She’s taken her talents to Corn Flakes!
According to Sports Business Journal, Douglas signed a sponsorship deal with Kellogg’s after winning the gold medal. She had already signed on to do the Kellogg’s Tour of Champions, a 40-city tour where she and other Olympians will perform for screaming throngs of tweens and their parents. (Parents, buy ear plugs. You’ll thank me later.)
GD is set to make millions over the next four years in endorsements. The Corn Flakes deal was her second major endorsement deal, after signing with Proctor and Gamble before the London games.
Not bad for a girl who was not even remotely looked at getting a gold in London because of Jordyn Wieber.
