Olympic Athlete Spotlight

J.R. Celski, a short-track speed skater, missed qualifying for the 2006 Torino Winter Olympic Games, but not because his time wasn’t fast enough but because he was 17 days too young for the age eligibility requirements. This 18-year-old prodigy won five medals in the 2009 World Championships and he is rumored to be the next Apolo Anton Ohno as he tries to skate his fellow team members to a medal victory in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. Watch J.R. on Biggest Loser season nine, as he shows the contestants how to do the slide board. (Photo Credit NBC/USOC)
