Apolo Ohno has won seven medals in the Winter Olympics throughout his career. He has shown that he has dedication and perseverance.

I thank my opponent for this debate.

By short track racing, I presume he means Short track speed skating, the sport of Apolo Ohno. I am also going to presume Apolo Ohno is the following gentleman http://en.wikipedia.org...

I will now negate my opponents case.

"Apolo Ohno has won seven medals in the Winter Olympics throughout his career"

--> In his total career, Apolo has won 14 Gold Medals [1]. The skater Ayn Hyun-Soo has won 19 Gold medlas [2].

"He has shown that he has dedication and perseverance."

--> This is in no way relevant. Anyone can show dedication and perseverance to anything, but it doesn't make them the best at something because of it.

To further negate the position Apolo Ohno is the best Short Track Speed Skate, Apolo Ohno holds no record record times for Short Track Speed Skate [3]. Ayn Hyun-Soo, however, holds 2 records, the 1500m and the 300m [3].

I find it unfortunate my opponent was unable to respond to my points.

Nevertheless, her arguments stand refuted and mine unrefuted.

Thank you.
