The Need for Speed
Apolo Anton Ohno
Controversy didn't escape speedskating at the Games.
 
Apolo Anton Ohno was on the map even before the start of the Games. But for U.S. speedskating, there was more to these Olympics than the soul patch phenom. Ohno took home two medals in short track, but Derek Parra came out of nowhere to win gold and silver in long track. And Chris Witty's long-track gold rounded out a total of 11 medals won by the Americans.

WITH JIM CAPLE
U.S. speedskater Annie Driscoll watched her teammates and her boyfriend get the call to go to the Olympics. She continued training as if she would make the Olympics but the days passed by, the opening ceremonies neared and she still didn't know whether she would be marching in with the other athletes or fleeing Salt Lake.


Q&A with Rusty Smith
Short track speedskater Rusty Smith settles into an Olympic rhythm and breaks in a new pair of skates.
 
Hovey: Ice, ice, baby
The Delta -- er, Salt Lake Ice Center is the hot spot at the center of the Games. It's about to get hotter.
 
Litigation between friends
Even if Davidson gets reinstated things might be a bit chilly for the team in Salt Lake.
 
Skaters say oh my to Ohno
As teammate Apolo Ohno gets the attention, Rusty Smith sits in the cool darkness of that shadow enjoying the peace and quietly making his own mark.
