Summary

As the son of a single father, Apolo Anton Ohno showed a lot of spunk and energy. To keep out of trouble, Ohno got involved in sports like swimming and inline skating. But everything changed when he saw the short-track speed skating during the 1994 Winter Olympic Games. His natural talent for the sport quickly became apparent, and soon he moved, reluctantly, from Seattle to Salt Lake City for serious training. After both triumphs and disappointments, Ohno's hard work and determination paid off when he skated away with two Olympic medals—one silver, one gold—in the 2002 Winter Games.

Apolo Anton Ohno examines the life of this extraordinary skater, from his thrilling victories in international competition to the excitement of becoming a celebrity athlete.
