Apolo Anton Ohno
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you ever get the chance to just sit and think? Do you like to have time to think through important decisions? Lots of people have habits for thinking, including going to certain places that they find help them think. Do you have a place like that?
 
2     The story of Apolo Anton Ohno could begin at his birth in 1982 or could even begin at his first big win in speed skating at the age of 14. But more important than both of those events was some "thinking time" Ohno found in the woods of Washington State and a decision he made on the side of the road during a rain storm. It was there that Ohno decided that he would stick with skating, when just days earlier he was ready to quit.
 
3     Ohno was born in Seattle, Washington and raised by his single father, Yuki Ohno. Yuki had quite a lot of influence in Ohno's career as a speed skater. Yuki was always behind his son, encouraging him to work as a speed skater, taking him to races, and helping Ohno make decisions about his career.
