Olympic multi gold medalist and superstar Simone Biles has been confirmed as a participant for season 24 of Dancing With the Stars, according to Entertainment Tonight.
This is a great move for Biles, post Olympics. Ideally she would have liked to do the fall season immediately coming off the last Olympic games but her gymnastics commitments made that impossible. But, the spring season allows her more flexibility. Biles told ET in August:
I would love to [join DWTS], but the fall season won’t work because [of] the tour. If I could do the spring season, I would love to do that!
Biles has gotten her wish, and knows who she would like to be her partner.
I think [I’d like to dance with] Sasha [Farber]. I think it would be cool to be with Sasha.
Being a gymnast is surely going to be an asset for Biles in this competition. Shecertainly understands choreographed routines and is in phenomenal shape. Should be a fun season. The new season premieres on March 20th on ABC.
