Following competition in Beijing, the torch has been passed as two of America’s newest heroes, Nastia Liukin and Bryan Clay, will become a part of that legacy with their own Wheaties boxes. Bryan Clay became the first American since Dan O’Brien in 1996 to win gold in the decathlon, earning the distinction of “World’s Greatest Athlete.” Clay took silver in Athens in 2004 and was World Champion in 2005.
