Newbie, Trevor Marsicano, challenges Apolo for the spotlight
Virtually unknown to the world a year ago, Trevor Marsicano, is taking the speed skating world by storm. In March, he broke the world record for the Men's 1000, only to hold the record for 20 minutes until now fellow Team USA member, Shani Davis, set it even lower. Furthermore, he just came home from the 2009 World Single Distance Championships with four medals, including a gold for the 1000m, a silver for the 1500m, and a bronze for the 5000m (team pursuit).
Not only is Trevor proving to be perhaps the most promising US athlete heading to Vancouver, but he may also surpass Apolo Ohno as the Team USA pretty boy. DAMN! He's fine!
