Dancing With The Athletes

 

 

Dancing With The Stars kicked off its 26th season last night with a special all-athlete cast of contestants. Though I’m not a regular viewer of the show, I had to tune in to see how Olympians like figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nigasu; NCAA Women’s Basketball champ and buzzer beater Arike Ogunbowale; Olympic gold medal winning softball pitcher Jennie Finch Daigle; and the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar would fare on the dance floor.

We all know how competitive athletes are, and in fact professional and Olympic champions like Emmet Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, and Laurie Hernandez are just a few of the athletes to have won the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy bestowed upon each season’s champion. Sheer athleticism and competitive drive, however, does not necessarily translate into the footwork, rhythm, elegance, and star quality required to win this competition. While some surprised, like the I, Tonya redeemed Tonya Harding and Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer, others disappointed like two-time world series champ Johnny Damon and two-time gold medal snowboarder Jamie Andersen, who due to an abbreviated 4-week season were sent packing after the first dance.  Read More
