Last night, Apolo Ono won his seventh Olympic medal, becoming the most decorated Winter Olympian in US history.
He is now ahead of Bonnie Blair, who has 6, and Eric Heiden, who has 5.
They were speed skaters, too.
Now, some may say Apolo's accomplishment isn't as great as Bonnie and Eric's were.
After all, Eric's medals were all gold. While five of Bonnie's were gold, and one was silver. Apolo only has two gold medals. He also has two silver and three bronze medals.
But the thing about it is, Bonnie and Eric skated alone. For the most part.
Apolo skates short track, with as many as 7 other skaters on the same ice.
With all the pushing and shoving that goes along with such a crowded oval.
It's a lot harder that way.
So, though he may have fewer gold medals
he is just as much a champion as anyone.
And that is as it should be.
