Rippon, Nagasu, Anderson and Mazdzer all competed for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. This special 26th season of the long-running dance competition series will feature only celebrities from the world of sports, and it will run for four weeks starting on April 30.

The cast of the new Dancing With The Stars season, which is made up entirely of athletes, was announced on Friday on Good Morning America.

The beloved figure skating bronze medalist from the Pyeonchang Olympic Games Adam Rippon will be partnering up with professional dancer Jenna Johnson.

Figure skater Tonya Harding tells Access that she's already gearing up to compete on Season 26 of "Dancing with the Stars" with her pro partner Sasha Farber.

Others are poking some fun at the announcements, notably the addition of Tonya Harding, who returned to spotlight this year with the release of Oscar-nominated I, Tonya, and is most famous for her feud with Nancy Kerrigan.
