Doritos confirmed the news in a separate tweet.

Clemons qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games after finishing third in the 100-meter hurdles at U.S. Olympic track and field trials in Oregon last month. 

She told The Washington Post in a phone interview that she had no idea her earrings from Hot Topic would catch so much attention saying she was "just being me."

Clemons also said that accessory wasn’t a random choice — her husband nicknamed her "Doritos" because of her broad shoulder and narrow waist. 

Shortly after winning her place on the U.S. Olympic team, Clemons was sent a custom Doritos Cool Ranch bag with her own face on it.
