No, this isn’t Rant OMG, but we due pay tribute to all athletes and their endeavors, including competition TV shows like Dancing With the Stars. As the American Idol spinoff begins its 18th season, the cast is full of athletes this year with an emphasis on those who competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi this past February. They’ve even added an additional host from the sports world who you probably know quite well, but we’ll get to that.

We have to give it to the folks at ABC — paying tribute to the Sochi Games (and Paralympic Games of 2014) is a great thing by one of the nation’s top broadcasting networks and we are sure the athletes appreciate it as much as we do. So even if you’re not a fan of the show (none of us have seen a single episode), you can appreciate this as well if you’re a sports fan, especially of the Olympics.

With the 18th season of Dancing With the Stars set to begin the Monday night after Selection Sunday, let’s dive right in and get you caught up on all the folks from the sports world who will be dancing for the crown(?) this year.
