    The face of Carlsbad's own gold medalist is now linked with another American icon.

    Snowboarder Shaun White is among the winter the latest athletes to grace the Wheaties box, according to company officials. He will be joined by skier Lindsey Vonn and Seth Wescott, who won gold in snowboard cross.

    The three Olympians will each get their own orange cereal box, the Minnesota-based General Mills said.

    It's been quite a week for White and Vonn, who both appeared on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno as well.

    Vonn will be the first female alpine skier to appear, and White and Wescott will be the first snowboard and snowboard cross athletes to earn the coveted spot.
         
    Vonn, a native of Burnsville, Minn., posted a picture of herself with her Wheaties box on her Facebook page Thursday morning. She wrote that it was an honor to be included.
