Fresh from Winter Olympic success, Adam Rippon has a lot of projects on the go.

The American skater is seemingly set to take part in the latest series of the US television show ‘Dancing With The Stars’.

Rippon – who won bronze in the team event in PyeongChang 2018 – is not the only Olympian lined up.

US Weekly have reported that Olympic gold medal-winning snowboarder Jamie Anderson will also participate.

Hectic workload

If confirmed, Rippon’s presence on the dance competition would add to his already-hectic workload.

He is already signed up to take part in the ‘Stars on Ice’ tour in the US which runs from April 6th-May 20th.

Rippon is included in the skating production alongside a host of other big names from the sport – including newly crowned world champion Nathan Chen.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ is due to begin a four-week run from April 30th.

The full cast list for the all-athlete special will be announced on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ show on April 13th.

Hands full

A busy man, Rippon definitely seems to have his hands full at the moment.

The 28-year-old has recently updated his instagram account with a picture of him and his new boyfriend.

According to ‘People’ magazine, Rippon and Jussi-Pekka Kajaala first met on Tinder a few months ago.

They have ‘officially’ been an item since last week.

Alternative Anderson

And Jamie Anderson? The double Olympic slopestyle gold medallist also has the chance to show off a different kind of footwork.

The 27-year-old has always been open to alternatives.

Anderson revealed to the Olympic Channel during her successful stint in PyeongChang how she finds time to meditate in the midst of competition.

The Californian picked up silver at the last Winter Games, finishing second behind Anna Gasser in the inaugural women’s Big Air event.
