Arlen is a former Paralympic swimmer who won three silver medals and one gold medal during the London 2012 Paralympic games. Arlen developed two rare medical conditions that resulted in her losing her ability to speak, walk and move, according to her website. She says she was forced to re-learn even these most basic skills. More recently she has worked as a sportscaster for ESPN. She will compete with fan-favorite pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy.

“This means everything,” Arlen said. “It’s a dream come true and it’s something I always wanted to do but never really knew if I was ever going to have that chance, just giving circumstances and everything. I can honestly say though that learning to walk was easier than learning to ballroom dance.”
