As OK! reported yesterday, gold medal decathlete Bryan Clay had his fingers crossed for one very special thing. And now, Bryan's second lifelong dream has come true: He will grace the cover of the Wheaties box.

The first things Bryan said to reporters on Aug. 22 when he won the decathlon in Beijing was, "I just want the Wheaties box. Put me on the Wheaties box." Less than a week later, Wheaties cereal fulfilled his request.

"After seeing (Bruce) Jenner, Dan O'Brien, Mary Lou Renton and a lot of the other people that you see got on the Wheaties box from the Olympics, as a kid you think that's the ultimate," Bryan tells OK!. "You know you've arrived when you're on the Wheaties box."

Following in the footsteps of other past Olympic and sports greats, Bryan will appear on the cover of the cereal box this year along with fellow Olympian Nastia Liukin, who helped the American gymnastics team capture five medals in Beijing, including an individual gold in the all-around.
