MOST COMMENTED

[SOCCER BUSINESS]U.S. women's national team star Christen Press is one of five athletes competing to become the next elite athlete to be featured nationally on the Wheaties box. They are participating in the Wheaties Next Challenge by asking their fans to vote for them by logging workouts.

Challenge participants will vote log workouts through the MapMyFitness platform -- either manually documenting online, recording through any of the apps or by connecting on one of the compatible devices.

The Wheaties Next Challenge runs through Aug. 31. The athlete with the most votes via workouts logged will appear on the Wheaties box in early 2015.

Besides Press, who recently joined the Chicago Red Stars after spending two-plus seasons in Sweden, the other competitors are Ryan Dungey (motocross), Blake Leeper(representing para-athletes and track & field),Rob Pannell (lacrosse) and Anthony “Showtime” Pettis (MMA).
