New York Marathon 2011
You can say that Apolo Ohno pretty much danced his way through the New York course. To finish the race in under four hours, the former Dancing with the Stars champion and Olympic speedskater incorporated short, ballistic-type one-and-a-half minute training with three-hour sessions. Even so, the final stretch was no picnic. “The last 6.2 miles are gruesome,” he told EXTRA. “My body isn't designed for this." Ohno donated over $26,000 to the Special Olympics, thanks to a donation from Subway. We say that beats the mirror-ball trophy.
