    Apolo Anton Ohno's dancing days are so 2007.

    The speed-skating superstar got off to a great start at the Vancouver Olympics Saturday after taking home the silver medal in the men's 1,500 meter race.

    Ohno's win at the winter games marks the first of many anticipated U.S. medals, as well as boosting his personal record to six medals, which ties him with Bonnie Blair for most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian of all time.

    And arguably the most important fact to note might be that Ohno's latest silver prize is his first since that showstopping turn as season four's Dancing with the Stars champ.
