How more rude can Ohno be

``I was waiting, waiting for an opportunity to pass,'' Ohno said. ``The Japanese guy was wide on the corner and I came up on him. I barely touched him. He's so light, I think he was going down already.''

I understand that he deserve the gold medal after knowing that corsstracking, although not a very serious offense but still will result in DQ. But
He cannot accept he was wrong, just show what kind of personality he has.

you are right.
ohno is arrogant and think, only he is the best

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Yes .... he's a prick - nothing more! cocky and arrogant!

But i am sure some blinded love-sick Ohno fan will come in here and call that comment "brash"

ys you're so pathetic, you should be kicked off this board.

Well I am a huge Apolo fan but unlike some ppl *cough cough* I can admit when one of my favorites does something wrong and I have to admit that his DQ was the right call and that those comments are a bit cocky.

Correct or not, his DQ was inconsequential since he only finished 3rd in that race.

Dong-Sung Kim got beat by Gagnon and Smith in his semifinal, so the big showdown was spoiled anyway.

Nice performance by the Canadians in shorttrack. Not to mention China's Yang Yang (A).

USA lost its chance of finishing top of the medal table because of their misfortunes last night.

He did know he did something wrong and that he was going to be disqualified. Thats why he eased up the last half lap, because he knew that to try to finish would only be in vain.

i think not all americans are arrogant, but i saw many at SLC and the most american athlets are arrogant.

it is good to have much self-confidence, but not like apolo anton ohno or bode miller or the women ice-hockey team

Funny! I didn't think he was arrogant at all, he was cute and excited about his Olympic experience. Sour grapes if you ask me.

All athletes are arrogant in a way. They know they're good and don't hide it. Also, Americans never fail doping tests and almost every other country has athletes that dope.

If it is not in America, his comment would definitely be treated as a bit of racism, I agree that some of us are a bit extreme over ohno, but then with comments like that, I cannot believe some people can say his comment is cute. Oh my god, what is happening in this world.
