Swimmer Janet Evans, diver Greg Louganis and hurdler Edwin Moses are landing on the cover of a Wheaties box decades after their Olympic-champion careers ended.

General Mills says the trio will be honored on cereal boxes as part of the Wheaties Legends series. The boxes will be on stores shelves in the U.S. in May.

Evans won four gold medals in distance swimming at the 1988 and 1992 Olympics; Louganis swept the 3-meter and 10-platform diving events in the 1984 and ‘88 Games; and Moses won two golds and set a world record in the 400-meter hurdles at the 1976 Montreal Games.

Evans is currently a vice chair for the group trying to bring the 2024 Olympics to Los Angeles; Louganis is a mentor for the U.S. Olympic diving team and an LGBT rights activist; and Moses is a sports administrator.
