Olympic heroes, former politicians, an Osmond, an Osbourne and a teenage witch
ABC SAYS: "Olympic swimming gold medalist Natalie Coughlin is the most decorated female athlete of both the 2008 Beijing and 2004 Athens Games. Coughlin has won a medal in every single Olympic event that she has ever entered, for a total of 11 Olympic medals. In 2008 she became the first American female athlete to win six medals in one Olympiad, in addition to becoming the first woman to win consecutive individual Olympic gold medals in the 100m backstroke. She is also the most decorated female swimmer in World Championship history, with 16 medals. Born and raised in northern California, Coughlin attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a BA in psychology in 2005."
WE SAY: The last 2008 Olympic sweetheart to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" was Shawn Johnson. She did OK. Then again, gymnastics skills convert naturally to movement and dance. Swimming skills do not.
