Athletes have enjoyed a great deal of success on the hit show Dancing with the Stars, and a strong crop for the upcoming 18th season suggests the trend will continue.
According to Ann Oldenburg of USA Today, the new cast is stacked with athletic talent in the form of Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White, former NHL star Sean Avery, record-breaking swimmer Diana Nyad and Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy.
Here is a look at all of the contestants along with their dance partners, courtesy of Good Morning America:
After becoming the first American pair to win gold in Olympic ice dancing during the 2014 Sochi Games, Davis and White are America's sweethearts. They have enjoyed an incredible amount of success together, but the greatest intrigue surrounding Dancing with the Stars is the fact that they'll be competing against each other.
