Speaker Profile

Apolo Ohno
U.S. Olympic Hall of Famer and author of Hard Pivot

Apolo Anton Ohno claimed his first major speed skating title at the U.S. Championships at the age of 14 and, over the next decade and a half, went from kid prodigy to the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian in history, earning eight Olympic medals in short-track speed skating. 
 
Following the 2010 Winter Olympics, Mr. Ohno used his understanding of sports psychology to develop a resilient and mission-driven approach that he described in his book, Zero Regrets. A recent follow-up, Hard Pivot: Embrace Change. Find Purpose. Show up Fully., centers on the concept of reinvention.
