Eight-time Olympic medalist Apolo Anton Ohno tells students that preparation for success is what counts.

His presentation was part of a visit to campus by three U.S. athletes on Oct. 17: Marlon Shirley, two-time Paralympic 100 m champion; Steve Mesler, 2010 USA Olympic gold medalist on the four-man Bobsled Team; and Ohno, U.S. short track speed skating champion who, with eight Olympic medals, is the most decorated American Winter Olympic athlete of all time.
