Speed skater Apolo Ohno to sign books at Barnes & Noble

Speed skater Apolo Ohno, the most decorated American Winter Olympics athlete of all time, will be at Barnes & Noble Johns Hopkins at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8, to sign copies of his just-published life story, Zero Regrets.

Ohno became the youngest U.S. national champion at the age of 14 but a year later finished last at the U.S. Olympic trials because of his lack of preparation. After a week of soul-searching, he recommitted to his sport and went on to win numerous major titles and eight Olympic medals. The book chronicles both his career and his relationship with the single father who raised him.
