I'd just like to follow up my last post with more on Apolo Anton Ohno. How amazing can one individual be? It's absolutely ridiculous how positive and talented this man is. In his race for gold in the 500 he was in last the whole race. On the final curve he went to pass Canada placing his hand on their hip to keep from banging into him. He did not push him, but less than a second after he removed his hand, the Canadian fell. A Korean also fell by himself infront of Apolo setting him up for second. They reviewed the video and DQ'd Apolo. I completely disagree with the choice of the referee, as does Apolo himself and many others. The referee was Canadian which causes the thought that it was a biased decision. Anyway, even with the DQ, and not placing in the 500 Apolo Ohno remained positive with no regrets after the race. Just the fact that he had second place taken from him without being upset or angry is completely admirable. He is so dedicated to his sport and team which showed in the relay as well, and the US team took home a Bronze metal in that. This was due to a huge push in the end from Apolo Ohno closing the gaps and passing China.
All I can say is that no one in my life has ever inspired me as much as Apolo Ohno. I can truly say I have a hero for the first time. He's an absolutely beautiful human being. He has an amazing personality and the fact that hes gorgeous with a great body doesn't hurt ;]. haha
But in all seriousness. wow. i wish i could be even half as incredible as he is.
Completely inspiring and deserving of every single race he has won, and medal he has earned.
Apolo Eight. Congratulations.
