  • Apolo Anton Ohno is the short-track speedskater whose eight Winter Olympic medals are more than any other American in history. Ohno was the overall short track World Cup champion in 2001, 2003, and 2005, and in 2006 he again raced in the Olympics, winning a gold medal (at 500 meters) and two bronze (at 1000 meters and in the 5000-meter team relay) in Torino, Italy. Ohno won his first gold medal in 1500-meter short track speedskating at the 2002 Winter Olympics. (The win was controversial; Ohno moved up to first after apparent winner South Korean Kim Dong-Sung was disqualified.) Ohno also won silver in the 1000 meters at the same Olympics, held in Salt Lake City.

  • In 1994 at the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Oppland, Norway, USA womens short track speed skater Kathy Turner returned yet again for the 1994 Games. She won gold in the 500 meters in a controversial race in which silver medalist Zhang Yanmei accused Turner of grabbing her leg as Turner passed her, however, the judges did not see it that way.
