(KSL News) Olympic speed skater, Apolo Ohno, was in Utah today with the nation's best speed skaters.

Ohno was here to compete in the U.S. Speed Skating Championships at the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns.

The competition qualifies skaters for the World Cup. "The number one thing is, we have everybody centrally located right now. We have some of the younger skaters training with some of the older guys; some of the veterans of the sport. And collaboratively, it makes the group stronger," says Ohno.

He also says he's just excited to be back in Utah where he won a gold and silver medal in the 2002 Winter Olympics.
