Looks like Dancing With The Stars may have scored itself another Olympian!
According to Entertainment Tonight, gold medalist Laurie Hernandez will be trading her unitard for a ballgown and competing in season 23 of the dance competition show!
The 16-year-old gymnast from Team USA is officially back home after dominating at the Rio Olympics — where she took home the silver medal on the balance beam and the gold in the women's team all-around.
But Hernandez isn't the first Olympian rumored to be competing for the mirror ball trophy this season!

Ryan Lochte is reportedly in talks to join the show to repair his damaged image, and Laurie's gymnastics teammate Simone Biles shot down rumors she would be joining the cast this season.
Though there's no word on whether or not Mark Ballas is going to return, the pro made it clear he would love to team up with Hernandez earlier this month, tweeting:
Hmmm… was Mark just fangirling over the Olympics awesomeness, or does he know something we don't!?
Do YOU think the gymnast will be strapping on her dancing shoes?
