U.S. short track skaters are ready

KEARNS — Months of training. Hours of painful work on the ice. Countless drops of sweat and aching muscles.
And now, finally, a chance to see how all that effort translates into performance as the U.S. speed skating team hosts the first major international competition of the season.
"There's definitely a different vibe when you walk in," Travis Jayner, a member of the U.S. Speedskating team, said Monday at the Utah Olympic Oval. [...] And yes, Apolo Anton Ohno will be there. And he has every intention of standing on the winners' podium at the end of the competition.
"I don't think motivation is ever a factor," Ohno said. "Once you get out there, you just want to win."
