Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan will also put on her dancing shoes, being paired with Artem Chigvintsev. "I mean, I've wanted to since the beginning," she told E! News after the cast was announced on "GMA". "So it's just scheduling and wondering if my body can hold up because I've been falling for 40 years."

Artem is excited to be partnered with the two-time Olympic medalist. "I've mentioned this before, I've never had an athlete before in my life as my celebrity partner in the show. This is the first time and I'm super thrilled," he gushed. "I feel like athletes have such a great advantage on 'Dancing with the Stars' because they know how to deal under pressure and they know what it takes to achieve the results."
