The soul-patch phenomenon swept through Salt Lake City and the nation. With it, Apolo Ohno's chaotic sport, short-track speedskating, reached a new level of popularity. Ohno, 19, won gold in the 1,500 meters when South Korea's Kim Dong-Sung (top right), who crossed the finish line first, was disqualified for impeding Ohno. He added a silver in the 1,000, where a final-turn pileup allowed unlikely Aussie Steven Bradbury (bottom right) to win. Ohno was lauded for his quick thinking to get up and lay his skate blade out to get second.
