An Olympian has taken home the Mirrorball Trophy once again as Laurie Hernandez joins Apolo Anton Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson and Meryl Davis as champion of ABC's 23rd season of "Dancing With the Stars."

The Final Five member is the youngest competitor (16) ever to win the reality dance competition. This the second time that professional dancer Valentin "Val" Aleksandrovich Chmerkovskiy grabs the trophy.

The teams of James Hinchcliffe and dancer Sharna Burgess, and Calvin Johnson Jr. with dancer Lindsay Arnold, came in second and third.
