It has an over-sized large 3-car garage.
There are 4 bedrooms an 4 bathrooms.
Ohno has used his celebrity status in many ways to help raise awareness of various issues. To help show the importance of math and science education he helped launch the “Math Moves U Hippest Homework Happening” program (apparently promoting English and Grammar was lower on his list of priorities). This program gave students the opportunity to do math homework online with celebrities and famous athletes.
What’s more important than the fact that is was Apolo Ohno’s home? The possibility that it could be your home. You’ll enjoy the incredibly spacious master bedroom…
and master bathroom:
And absolutely love the private balcony off the master bedroom.
Check out the gourmet kitchen. After the 2010 Winter Games, Apolo partnered with the Ask, Listen, Learn program to discourage underage drinking and promote healthy lifestyle. He furthered his goal of promoting healthier food choice by working on a healthy eating cookbook in 2010. Many of those recipes were prepared in this kitchen!

Before the 2010 Olympic games Apllo Ohno said the following about training: “Come these Games, there’s no one who’s going to be fitter than me. There’s just no way… I’ve never prepared like this in my life — for anything. I want to leave nothing on the table.” This is the in-home gym he used to get in his peak shape.
Apolo became interested in a career in entertainment when he participated in (and won) the fourth season of Dancing with the Stars. Can you imagine him practicing his moves in this spacious room?
Ohno was a fan of the show Minute to Win It, which makes sense considering his need for speed. In fact he was such a fan that he appeared on Minute to Win It as the host in 2013. Who knows how many episodes he watched while relaxing in this luxurious theater room.
You also might be able to catch one or more of Ohno’s other television appearances. In 2012 he was a guest star as a suspect in the 2nd season of Hawaii Five-O. He has made a guest appearance on the Biggest Loser twice! In 2013 Apolo appeared in the Syfy original movie: Tasmanian Devils, as a character named “Stone”.
Did you know Apolo was a guest judge on Project Runway in 2008? You can see from the customization in the home that Apolo has an eye for fashion and style.
