The cast of Dancing With the Stars’ 26th season was revealed on Friday’s episode of Good Morning America. In what will be the show’s first-ever all-athletes season, the competitors include figure skaters Adam Rippon, Tonya Harding and Mirai Nagasu, as well as basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, MLB great Johnny Damon, pro snowboarder Jamie Anderson, Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer, NFL star Josh Norman, and softballer Jennie Finch. “I think Jenna’s gonna have her hands full–and that’s my dance move, Jenna’s hands being full,” said Rippon of his professional partner, Jenna Johnson. Meanwhile, women’s basketball player Arike Ogunbowale might have the greatest challenge to overcome, as she’s still enrolled at Indiana’s Notre Dame University after leading that school’s team to the championship title last month. “I have a lot of stuff going on with school. I still haven’t caught up from the Final Four,” she said. “But we’re definitely going to have time to do it.” Dancing With the Stars: Athletes premieres on ABC on April 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
