Apolo Ohno Runs New York City Marathon in 3:25:12

8-time Olympic speed skating champion Apolo Ohno ran the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday in NYC.

Ohno showed he is a great all-around athlete by running the 26.2 mile course in 3:25:12.

Apolo decided to enter the race back in February when Subway spokesman Jared Fogle challenged him to do it (full story).

He jokingly tweeted a warning to fellow warnings pre-race:

Warning 2 all, I apologize in advance 4 those who run on my left side. I’ve a severe tendency 2 take sharp lefts consistently. #shorttrack
