Ohno shared his thoughts on the Koreans' hostile reaction by saying, "I was really bothered by it. Later on I realized that was built up by certain people and that was directed at me, negative energy from other things, not even resulting around the sport, but around politics, using me to stand on the pedestal as the anti-American sentiment".
I grew up around many Asian cultures, Korean one of them. Earlier the same year, President George Bush had named North Korea as one of three members of the Axis of Evil, which had upset some South Koreans; directing their anger at Ohno was a less direct way of voicing anger against Bush's decision.
Ohno later became host of a revival of Minute to Win It on Game Show Network and served as a commentator for NBC's coverage of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
As he grew older, his father became concerned his son would become a latchkey kid, so he got his son involved with competitive swimming and quad-speed roller skating at age 6.
Ohno's accolades and accomplishments include being the United States Olympic Committee's Male Athlete of the Month in October 2003 and March 2008, the U. Speedskating's Athlete of the Year for 2003, and was a 2002, 20 finalist for the Sullivan Award, which recognizes the best amateur athlete in the United States.
Raised by his father, Ohno began training full-time in 1996.
It was pretty positive right from the time we landed. After two false starts from other skaters, Ohno won gold in the 500 m when he took the lead with an explosive start and held it until the finish.
Afterward, Ohno said, "I was in the moment at the time. The starter had been pretty quick all day, so that's why there were so many false starts at the beginning.
Though Ohno, Smith and Biondo were heavily favored to win the 1000 m, the race ended with Ohno finishing third, Smith second, and Davis at the top of the podium.
Prior to crossing the finish line, Ohno started celebrating for Davis and Smith.
