American snowboarder Amy Purdy had a strenuous routine in Sochi — on the mountain in the afternoon, then dancing at night.
For the effort, Purdy earned an Olympic bronze medal in the inaugural event at the Sochi Paralympics on Friday. Now she's gearing up to win a sparkly mirror-ball trophy, making her debut as the first double-amputee to take part in ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
Professional dancer Derek Hough flew to Russia to perfect their ballroom bond, preparing for potentially several weeks of samba, tango and cha-cha-cha. On Monday, they'll arrive at a Los Angeles television studio for more practice.
