LOS ANGELES (AP) — Muhammad Ali, Bruce Jenner and Mary Lou Retton are appearing on new Wheaties boxes featuring retro images of the Olympic champions.

The boxes were unveiled Wednesday in Los Angeles and will be available on store shelves nationwide.

Wheaties marketing manager Betsy Frost says fans have been asking for the trio to be featured on cereal boxes again. Ali won a gold medal in boxing at the 1960 Rome Olympics; Jenner was the decathlon champion at the 1976 Montreal Games; and Retton won the all-around gold at the 1984 Los Angeles Games.
