really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult-nonfiction, biography-memoir, sports-and-athletes
Read in January, 2010

Although this book is a bit dated because it was written after Ohno's performance in the Salt Lake City Olympics, it still was interesting to read about Apolo's early years, how he became interested in short track skating, and about the challenges he overcame to become the world's best short track skater. His attitude, demeanor, and work ethic serve as a role model for young people. He is a great yet humble competitor despite his huge success and following. I would recommend this book to middle schoolers.
