The correct answer to this question is Sarah Hughes Sarah Elizabeth Hughes commonly known as Sarah Hughes, is a former American competitive figure skater. Sarah Hughes was the figure skating star that was featured on a box of Wheaties in 2002. During the World Championships in 2001, Sarah won a bronze medal, and during the 2002 Olympic Games, she won a gold medal just at the age of 16.
Her excellent performance in the women’s figure skating finale in 2002 captured much attention to her and this captivated General Mills’ “Breakfast of Champions” cereal to put Sarah on its cereal box. Sarah is the second to appear on the table, first being Kristi Yamaguchi, who was the gold medal winner in 1992.
The answer to this is Sarah Hughes. She may not be a competitive skater now but she has shown during her prime that she is someone worth watching. She was the Olympic champion in the year 2002 and she also won the bronze medal in the year 2001. During this time, the expected skating champion is Michelle Kwan.
The thing is, Kwan made a couple of mistakes that made her drop to third place. Sarah Hughes was in fourth place in the beginning but because of her stellar performance, it became obvious that she was the rightful winner that year. People were quick to dismiss her because they did not think that she could do it but she proved that she can.
