"Dancing with the Stars" 2014 premieres March 17 on ABC with an 18th season of action from the storied ballroom. With precious few spoilers available leading up to the scheduled March 4 cast reveal, another Olympian casually threw her hat into the small ring of potential celebrity contestants via a Feb. 22 tweet.

During a Twitter question and answer session with alpine skier Julia Mancuso, who won bronze in the women's super combined event at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, a fan asked if she'd be interested in competing for the mirror ball trophy. Mancuso, 29, replied "I love to Dance!" leaving the door open for potential participation.

Other Olympians, including ice dance gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White and skeleton silver medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace have expressed interest in pairing up with a "DWTS" pro for the upcoming season.

Past seasons have seen three Olympians waltz away with the coveted mirror ball trophy. Short track speed skater Apolo Ohno was first to accomplish the feat when he earned the title alongside Julianne Hough at the close of season four. Figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi earned her title with Mark Ballas during season six, and gymnast Shawn Johnson won season eight, also with Ballas on her arm.

To find out whether or not Mancuso joins the celebrity lineup, watch the "Dancing with the Stars" 2014 cast reveal during the March 4 episode of "Good Morning America."
