CONNECT WITH APOLO
Apolo Ohno, retired short track speed skater, has won a record eight Winter Olympics medals for the USA. He started breaking records at age 14, when he became the youngest US National Champion in short track speed skating. The winning streak continued, but not without a devastating bump in the road and a rude awakening that nearly derailed him. You won't believe the one distinctive "brink of midnight" moment that shaped the rest of his life. In Apolo's words: "When you win, you win. When you lose, you learn."
APOLO'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"I think that we actually have all of the answers that we truly seek. They're actually within ourselves."
"Listen to your inner voice and have a conversation with it."
"Human beings are designed to move in some way."
"Whatever your relationship is with this Earth, use it. It's free...It's so profound in terms of what you get in return."
"When you win, you win. When you lose, you learn."
"The tools that we have through sport are innately available to everyone."
"Everything happens for a reason, and I think that reason is to learn.'
