MilkPEP sponsors Apolo Ohno WASHINGTON, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In April of this year, short-track speedskating legend Apolo Ohno embarked on an athletic comeback of a different sort – as an endurance athlete. He is now halfway through his training and recovery journey that will culminate at the world's most grueling endurance race: the IRONMAN® World Championship triathlon – a 140.6-mile swim-bike-run event in Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i. Ohno, an elite athlete once at the top of his sport, has had to learn how to translate his speed and power to the three disciplines of triathlon. His biggest fear? Being coined a "newbie" while racing among a field of pro athletes that compete at the highest level.
