The thrilling news was announced yesterday in a short seven-second video.

As Lee mentions in the announcement, she is an Olympic gold medalist. In Tokyo this year, she walked away with the highly-sought gold medal in the women's gymnastics all-around event. She also took home a silver medal for the team competition and a bronze medal for uneven bars.

What's important to note is that Sunisa Lee is a St. Paul, Minnesota native. In other words, she deserves a lot of Minnesotan support. (So, tune in on September 20th and cheer her on!)

Suni Lee isn't the first Olympic gymnast to compete on Dancing With The Stars. Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Shawn Johnson, Mary Lou Retton, Laurie Hernandez, and Nastia Liukin have all taken a spin on the dance floor. 

Perhaps Lee will join Hernandez and Johnson as Mirrorball winners! 

The rest of the celebrities have not yet to be revealed, except for Dance Moms and Youtube personality Jojo Siwa, who will be dancing with a female partner, something unprecedented in DWTS's history.

The full cast will be revealed on September 8th. As mentioned earlier, the season, itself, starts on September 20th.

Mark it down on your calender, and get ready to cheer for our Minnesota star, Sunisa Lee!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
