For the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2018, Kellogg's will continue its celebration of what inspires people to get up each morning, enjoy breakfast and embrace the potential of a new day. Whether you are a student, a parent or an elite athlete, we all awake with an individual reason and answer to the question, "what gets you started?" The drive at the start of each day isn't always the same, but the routines we form, like eating Kellogg's cereal for breakfast, set us up to accomplish our goals.

"We're thrilled to welcome this group of accomplished athletes to Team Kellogg's," said Sam Minardi, director, brand marketing, Kellogg Company. "As they share their personal motivations while training for the PyeongChang Games, we hope Americans are inspired to focus on their own everyday inspirations as they work toward achieving their potential."

Meet the Team Kellogg's athletes here and follow the evolution of their stories as they share what gets them started each day. Additionally, the athletes will be featured on their very own Kellogg's limited-edition cereal boxes, available at grocery retailers nationwide in December.

Whether he sets his sights on lifting more weight or working on choreography during training, he knows that he is one step closer to his dream by accomplishing his daily goals. Nathan will appear on boxes of Corn Flakes®.
  • Four-time U.S. Olympian and three-time U.S. Olympic medalist Kelly Clark – one of the most successful snowboarders in history – feels that part of her purpose is to help the women following in her footsteps push the sport even further.
