Season 9 of the popular ABC “Dancing with the Stars” reality show will feature another Olympic Gold Medalist – Natalie Coughlin. Season 8 was won by Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and other Olympic stars who have competed in past seasons include Apolo Anton Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, Evander Holyfield, Clyde Drexler, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Monica Seles, Misty May-Treanor and Maurice Greene.
The season premiere will be September 21. Natalie Coughlin will be joined by 15 other contestants including Tom DeLay, Donny Osmond, Kathy Ireland, Kelly Osborne, Melissa Joan Hart and more.
Coughlin is excited about having the opportunity not only to learn to dance but also to train hard at something else besides swimming. I know we will be looking forward to seeing what she can do and cheering her on!
