On Good Morning America, the ten dance partner pairings were revealed for the upcoming 26th season.

Rippon, who is the first openly gay US Olympian, has been paired with Jenna Johnson. Meanwhile, Nagasu also took home a bronze medal for her efforts, and she will join forces with Alan Bernstein. Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer, who competed at both the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics Games. The former ice skating star, whose career was forever ruined after her ex-husband was involved in orchestrating an attack on Harding's greatest rival, Nancy Kerrigan. Harding's professional partner is Sasha Farber.

70-year-old retired National Basketball Association player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who played 20 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks will be joining Lindsay Arnold, who won season 25 of DWTS.

Norman, the only football player competing in this group, will be dancing with Sharna Burgess, who danced with Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown a year ago.




The selected athletes may have a shorter time to compete for the top prize, but ABC welcomes them to "sparkle up their uniforms and lace up their dancing shoes as they ready themselves for their first dance on the ballroom floor", in a press release issued to Newsweek.

Arike Ogunbowale, who led Notre Dame women's basketball to the NCAA championship with two buzzer-beating shots in the Final Four, is the younger sister of former 'Skins practice squad running back Dare Ogunbowale. The change could likely be attributed to the network's American Idol reboot, Entertainment Weekly reported.

At last - the cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 26 has been unveiled!
