Apolo Anton OHNO biography

Born to a Japanese father and an American mother, Apolo Anton Ohno had a troublesome youth, but his parents used his skating talent to straighten him out. After winning the 1999 World Junior title, Ohno soon rose to the international top, winning the 2001 1500 m World title. A crowd favourite at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, he won two medals, both of them after eventful races. His 1500 m gold was gained after the controversial disqualification of Kim Dong-Seong for cross-tracking. In the 1000 m, four out of five finalists fell in the final lap, allowing Steven Bradbury to win. Ohno managed to quickly crawl over the finish line to win the silver. Four years later, Ohno won three more Olympic medals, including the title in the 500 m. In 2008, he won the overall world title, after having won five distance titles earlier in his career. Ohno also won the World Cup three times (2001, 2003, 2005).
