Ohno's father, a hair stylist and owner of the salon Yuki's Diffusion, often worked 12-hour shifts, and with no family in the United States, found it hard to balance career and family.
His father chose to name his son Apolo after the Greek words "Apo," which means to "steer away from" and "lo," which means "look out; here he comes." When Ohno was very young, his father meticulously researched childcare providers to care for his son during his long work hours.
As he grew older, his father became concerned his son would become a latchkey kid, so he got his son involved with competitive swimming and quad-speed roller skating at age 6.
He later switched from the instruction of Benton Redford, a National Champion, to a team in Federal Way, WA called Pattisons Team Extreme and became a national inline speedskating champion and record holder himself.
In 1997, Ohno scored his first major victory, winning the U. After the trials, his father took him to an isolated cabin in Washington to give him time to contemplate his future away from any distractions.
