Olympic Speed Skating


Who is J.R. Celski? - The story, by now, is familiar to millions: A young kid from Federal Way, Washington a natural on inline skates, switches to the ice, moves away from home to train like a fiend, wins short-track speedskating medals at the Winter Olympics. Except in this version, the central character isn't named Apolo Anton Ohno. He's J.R. Celski, the next speed demon from Federal Way likely to take the winter-sports world by storm.
