Apolo Anton Ohno is an American speed skater. I’m sure you’ve seen him on TV — he’s very famous, tied for first for the most winter Olympic medals one by an American, and he was also on Dancing with the Stars in 2007.
Interestingly, Ohno was raised by his dad, a first-generation Japanese. Since the dad had to work a lot when Apolo was young, he enrolled his kid in after-school sports. That included roller skating and speed skating. You can see his dad in this Father’s Day promo video for the Vancouver Olympics. He’s doing really well this year and determined to win more medals, even if it means making some controversial moves, so keep an eye on him.
