We were treated so well in Korea--from the moment we arrived, it was wonderful. They wanted to make sure the team was safe and that we had a good clean competition. Our team got pretty sick, a stomach flu, but I was able to compete well and brought home two gold medals.

On his goals for these Olympics

One goal was just to get to Torino. Now I just want to finish and say, "I did my best," regardless of the outcome. That would be perfect.

On what he sees himself doing after speedskating

Time will tell. So many avenues and doors have opened up because of this sport. I give myself no limitations.

OHNO, 23, WILL SKATE IN FOUR OLYMPIC EVENTS. HE'S FAVORED IN THE 1,500 METERS ON FEB. 12
