U.S. gymnast Simone Biles is set to compete on the upcoming 24th season of the long-running dance show, Entertainment Tonight reports. Biles’s Olympic teammate Laurie Hernandez won the competition last season.

Biles had expressed interest in appearing on DWTS last season but said it didn’t work with her schedule. This season begins on March 20.
