Apolo Anton Ohno

Future Hopes

When the Winter Olympics are held in 2006, Ohno will be only 23 years old. The average speed skater peaks at 24. Ohno's legion of fans should have many more years of spectacular performances to look forward to, but even if Ohno never wins another race, he will still be remembered for the inspiring stories he provided in 2002.
