Apolo Ohno is an Olympic speed skater who has won eight medals, including two gold medals, and has a net worth of $9 million. In addition to his net worth and his success in speed skating, Ohno has also found fame in the fields of philanthropy, motivational speaking, and as a competitor on TV dance competition show Dancing with the Stars. Ohno's calling as a speed skater first began when he was only 12 years old and saw footage of the sport during the 1994 Winter Olympics. Since making his Olympic debut at the 2002 Games, Ohno has proven to be both an incredibly popular racer and one who's met his share of controversy. At those same games, he was involved in a controversial judgment involving cross-tracking in which many commentators thought his gold medal win was the result of a bad call. The controversy resulted in many Korean speed skating fans having a lot of animosity toward Ohno because it was his Korean opponent who suffered as a result of the call. He has continued to perform very well in both subsequent Olympic Games since his debut, and also continues to do great work as a philanthropist and public figure.
