American speed skater

Short-track speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno was the darling of American sports fans during the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. The 19-year-old heartthrob with the soul patch was heavily favored to finish with medals in four events at those games. Although in the end he left with only two-a gold and a silver-he was inspiring for his athleticism, for the difficulties that he had to overcome, and for his good sportsmanship in the face of contested races and death threats.
