Season 24 of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" will debut later this month and today we've learned what athletes and celebrities will be participating in the competition.

According to ABCNews.com, the athletes competing in DWTS this year are Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross, former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, NFL running back Rashad Jennings and professional bull rider Bonner Bolton.

Biles, who won five gold medals at the most recent Olympic games in Rio, isn't sure how her gymnastic background is going to play out on the dance floor.

She told USA Today,

 "I think some of it might help, but some may work against it. In gymnastics, we're used to being upright, and Sasha told me I needed to lean forward, so it's different."

Additionally, Mr. T, Chris Kattan and Normani Kordei will also be competing. Check out the full list here.

The new season of DWTS premieres on March 20th.
