Ohno wins silver medal

Apolo Anton Ohno won the silver medal Saturday in the men's 1,500 meter short-track speedskating event at the Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Ohno was in line to finish fourth, but advanced to second place after two Koreans in front of him, Lee Ho-Suk and Sung Si-Bak, took each other out, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Ohno's silver medal put him ahead of Eric Heiden as the most decorated American male athlete in Winter Olympic history, according to the USA Today.

Ohno has three more races in this year's Olympics, and only needs one more medal to bypass Bonnie Blair as the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian, male or female.
