OK, so Charlie didn’t get to win DWTS — his Olympic partner Meryl got that done with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, although Charlie and Sharna Burgess got pretty close on their own — but now Charlie and Meryl are both up for ESPY Awards. They are nominated in two separate categories: Best Male U.S. Olympian and Best Female U.S. Olympian.
Both athletes shared their excitement about the good news.
"It's a true honor to be nominated Thank you @ESPYS,” Meryl tweeted, then added, "Oh, and this time @CharlieaWhite and I don't have to compete against one another!! Woopwoop go team!!" Absolutely! Charlie tweeted, "So incredibly excited to be nominated for an @ESPYS award! Best U.S. Olympic Athlete!! Please vote here espn.go.com/espys/"
Voting ends Wednesday, July 16, which is also the day of the show, which will be hosted by Drake and air at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. Good luck to Meryl and Charlie!
DWTS Season 19 premieres this fall on ABC.
