Is apolo ohno dating anyone
For most skaters though, there’s the added pressure of being away from home, from family, and from childhood or school friends.For most skaters making it to the National team, means moving across country to skate in Salt Lake City, and leaving pretty much everyone and everything behind.Goofy, giggly, exhausted, determined, hungry, pained, anxious, angry, sad, even turned on.He’s received pep-talks from him, had philosophical discussions and strategy arguments with him, and even shared late night rambling phone calls with him. Well, that’s an over simplification, but basically true. So in reality, Apolo can be a bit of an ass, but do it with a genuine and mostly innocent smile on his face at the same time; which is maddening for someone like JR, who knows Apolo Ohno on a personal level. He’d looked up to him when he was little and Apolo raced against and played with JR’s two older brothers. 16 years of talking himself up for competitions, of believing in himself when no one else seemed too, of making comeback after comeback, of ignoring haters and the snide comments in the press, all have led to a certain unrelenting self-confidence. Anyone who subscribes to his twitter feed can clearly see that.
But now, at 19, JR knows Apolo beyond the public façade of the speed skating legend (sorta) named after the Greek God.
There is no room for doubt in Apolo Anton Ohno’s life.
When Apolo had gained national fame at the 2002 Olympics, JR had begun to look up to him on a completely different level.
So it could be annoying when Apolo turned on the charm, or gave an interview and said something that to Apolo was a completely reasonable and natural thing to say, but to everyone else seemed completely douchey.
JR has learned to mostly NOT take these comments to heart.
It’s Simon and Jordan, who are pissed on Travis’s behalf. But instead of sitting down and putting his shoes on, Apolo turns to look at JR, a contemplative look on his face.“Ok, what did I do this time? He can figure things out if you give him enough time, and enough hints. But next time a reporter comes to interview you at the Oval, take the time to introduce them around, preferably on camera. Apolo looks at him puzzled.“JR, we’ve been dating for a while now. JR opens his mouth but closes it when he has no immediate response to Apolo’s words.
