Apolo Ohno is like your driver license. Every four years there’s a renewal process that doesn’t take nearly as long as you thought.
As Ohno’s quadrennial fame is fleeting these three weeks, I thought it noteworthy to explore what seems to matter most to NBCOlympics (no space) viewers: His girlfriend.
Ohno’s longtime lover was Allison Baver, also a speedskater competing in the Vancouver Olympics. Though NBC’s Philly affiliate reports that Baver dumped Ohno: “In the last year or so Allison ended her relationship with Apolo so that she could focus on her skating.”
But from the tone of the NBC piece, it’s pretty apparent that the fate of the relationship is still in question: “So what’s now for Allison? Will she get back together with Apolo? Will she turn to modeling full time? Will she keep skating?”
Of course, the only reason I care to report on Ohno’s off-ice lifestyle is that Baver is beautiful.
“So what’s now for Allison?“
I’d love to see her get behind an Uncle Luke comeback.
