Apolo Ohno to be inducted into US Speedskating Hall of Fame

KEARNS, Utah (AP) Eight-time Olympic medalist Apolo Ohno is being inducted into the U.S. Speedskating Hall of Fame next month.

Ohno is the most decorated American in Winter Olympics history, having earned his medals in three games during his career.

He says he feels ''proud, blessed and humbled'' about the honor announced Monday.

The ceremony will be May 13 in Park City, Utah.

U.S. Speedskating President Mike Plant says Ohno is one of the ''great ambassadors'' of the sport and credits him with raising speedskating's profile off the ice.

Ohno won ''Dancing With the Stars'' in 2007, and has worked as a game-show host and NBC commentator at the 2012 and 2014 Olympics.
