Apolo Ohno Biography

Apolo Ohno's prodigious speed skating career started in his early teens. After training under Pat Wentland in Lake Placid for just six months, Ohno claimed his first overall title at the U.S. Championships at fourteen years of age. Over two decades, he won 12 national titles; three World Cup overall titles, and a total of 21 World Championship medals: eight gold, seven silver, and six bronze. Ohno is the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian in history—an eight-time Olympic medalist with two gold medals. He also serves as the Ambassador to the Winter Olympic Games in the U.S. and around the world.

Ohno has dramatically reinvented himself since the Olympics. In 2007, Ohno found his way into mainstream popularity by winning season 4 of ABC’s hit reality show "Dancing with the Stars," and in 2013, became the host of the TV game show "Minute to Win It" on GSN. The next year, he competed in the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii and, after training for six months, Ohno finished in under 10 hours. In 2014 and 2018, Ohno was an NBC sports analyst for the Sochi Winter Olympics and PyeongChang Winter Olympics, respectively. He is currently on the 2026/2030 Winter Olympic bid committee for Salt Lake City, Utah and on the 2028 Summer Olympic bid committee for Los Angeles.

Today, Ohno is passionate about sharing insights and lessons from his 15-year Olympic career to Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits alike. His passion for travel has brought him to over 60 countries, exposing him to some of the brightest minds and cultures. Ohno has a keen interest in promoting health and wellness and enjoys creative pursuits such as producing and writing. As the author of the New York Times bestseller Zero Regrets, an inspirational guide to chasing one’s dreams, Ohno is writing a new book about reinventing and transforming oneself, achieving a winning mindset, overcoming challenges, and dealing with trauma—all to achieve your highest goals.
