I freaking love the Olympics and everything about them.
I love the insane training the athletes put themselves through.
I love the power of putting all that training to the test in the moment of truth.
I love seeing how people from around the world come together to celebrate what is possible in human performance.
So whenever I get to meet an Olympian, I’m really excited.
And meeting one like Apolo Ohno was no disappointment.
If you watched the winter Olympics at all in the past 15 years, you know his name.
He is the face of speed skating and is still commentating at Olympics currently.
But what you might not know is that Apolo was once a punk kid, who had never met his mother, was angry at life, and had no work ethic.
Yes he was talented and powerful.
But it wasn’t until he put his mind to train like a champion, committed fully, and became obsessed with his sport that he rose to Olympic glory.
There were so many parts of this interview that I loved so much. I can’t wait for you to listen to Episode 470 with Olympian Apolo Ohno.
