'DWTS': Tonya Harding, Mirai Nagasu, Adam Rippon to compete

Damon has been announced as part of Season 26 of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" cast. "But we're definitely going to have time to do it". In that way, this really is just like any other season of the series.

While plenty of athletes have previously competed on the show, the upcoming season - which starts Monday, April 30 (7 p.m. ET, ABC) - features an athletes-only cast, and it looks incredible.

Nagasu and Rippon will be partnered with Alan Bersten and Jenna Johnson, respectively.

Ogunbowale played for the University of Notre Dame and her three point shot won them the 2018 NCAA Championship.

The celebrities are National Basketball Association legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, former Major League Baseball star Johnny Damon, Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu, Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer, NFL star Josh Norman, Olympic softball player Jennie Finch, Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding, Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, and Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon.
