Following the gold medal footsteps of other star athletes like Michael Phelps, Natalie Coughlin and Katie Hoff, Olympic speed skating champion Apolo Anton Ohno is the newest ambassador for Omega, the official timekeepers at the Vancouver games. As the only U.S. Winter Olympian chosen to become an ambassador this year, Ohno will sport Omega’s “Seamaster Planet Ocean” watch, part of the brand’s special Olympic collection at the games and will also participate in in-store appearances at flagship stores in Vancouver and New York City. “I am proud to partner with Omega here in Vancouver and help celebrate the brand’s rich Olympic history,” he says in a release. “It is an absolute honor to receive their support and be part of a brand that means so much to the Olympic Movement.” The Olympic games kick off tonight with the opening ceremony, and you can witness all of the history making action on NBC.
