Looks like there’s going to be another Olympic gold medalist vying for the coveted Mirrorball trophy this spring.
Reigning all-around gymnastics champion Simone Biles is set to compete on Season 24 of reality series “Dancing With the Stars,” “Entertainment Tonight” reports.
The 19-year-old gymnastics powerhouse will come on the heels of her Rio 2016 Summer Olympics teammate Laurie Hernandez, who won “DWTS” last fall with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Fellow Final Five gymnast Aly Raisman had also competed on Season 16 of the long-running reality series and finished fourth.

Biles said she had wanted to compete on the ballroom series last fall, but her schedule didn’t allow it.
“If I could do the spring season, I would love to do that!” Biles told ET.
“I think [I’d like to dance with] Sasha [Farber],” Biles continued. “I think it would be cool to be with Sasha.”
Season 24 of “Dancing With the Stars” premieres Mar. 20 on ABC.
