Dancing with the Stars Athletes Season: Cast Revealed!

by at .

It seems like an athlete wins nearly every season of Dancing with the Stars, doesn't it?

Looking ahead to Season 26, however, we can say with absolute certainty:

An athlete WILL win Dancing with the Stars.

This is because the ABC competition will air a special four-week event in which only current and former athletes compete.

Pretty cool concept, right?

With the exception of the inclusion of a certain disgraced figure skater who almost definitely played a role in assaulting her main rival at the Olympics back in the 1990s.

Who are we talking about?
