“In November I got an email from Dancing with the Stars asking if I was interested [in competing],” Amy told TeamUSA.org. “Right away, I was really excited but I told them this had to be after the Paralympics because I obviously didn’t have time to do it then.”

She continued, “I got on the phone with the producers and we first talked about if I even liked dancing, which I do love. I’ve actually watched the show before and thought, I can do this, or at least I think I can do this.’ I told them ‘yes,’ though it had to be after the Paralympics, and they said ‘no problem.’ It is after the Paralympics, but is right after we race so it’ll be a little challenging but fun.”
