When “Dancing With the Stars” announced that season 26 would feature an all-athletes cast, I was a little disappointed— I mean, they’re all already athletically inclined, so you’d assume it wouldn’t be much of a challenge, but boy was I wrong!

U.S. Olympian Adam Rippon, NFL star Josh Norman and figure skater Tonya Harding were in the final three, each having to give a final performance with their pro partners before finding out who would take home the beloved Mirrorball Trophy.

Ultimately, Adam Rippon and his partner, Jenna Johnson, were crowned the winners, and the moment was so sweet.

“The Mirrorball has now taken on a new meaning, someone like me is accepted and I feel loved,” Adam said. Congratulations, Adam and Jenna!
