'Dancing With The Stars' Season 26 Cast Revealed

Basketball player Arike Ogunbowale will team up with Gleb

Dancing with the Stars: Athletes will feature Tonya Harding, Mirai Nagasu and Adam Rippon.

Norman is the most notable active athlete of the bunch, as he is a one-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro who plays for the Washington Redskins.

Non-skaters among the group include basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, NFL star Josh Norman and baseball's Johnny Damon. The new crop of contestants for "Dancing with the Stars: Athletes" was revealed Friday on "Good Morning America", and it's stacked with fan favorites.

"Athetes", Harding is part of a group of 10 competitors from the world of sports, all vying for what ABC loves to call "the coveted Mirrorball trophy" in the series' first all-athlete season. Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver are among the athletes who have won the competition in its 13-year history.
