Ohno Claims Silver in 1500 Meters

Apolo Anton Ohno won a silver medal in the 1500-meter event of men’s short-track speedskating on Saturday night.

Ohno moved from fourth to second on the final turn as two South Koreans wiped out just ahead of him. Jung-Su Lee, a 20-year-old South Korean, won the gold medal.

It was Ohno’s sixth Olympic medal, making him the skater with the most Olympic medals in short-track speedskating history. He also now has more Olympic medals than any other American man in any sport. (Speed skater Eric Heiden held the old record with five.)

And Ohno won Dancing With the Stars in 2007.
