Blame it on the Koreans?

Is it me or was Apolo Ohno not his usual humble self during his NBC interview after his silver medal win in the 1500 meters? Ohno complained about his Korean competitors (which made bronze medalist J.R. Celski, who is on friendly terms with the Koreans, look uncomfortable), he brushed off matching Bonnie Blair's six winter games medals, and rather than respectfully waiting as Celski completed his portion of the interview, Apolo shrieked, hugged the bronze medalist, and then scampered off. Very odd. Perhaps Apolo was making his getaway before the Korean press caught up with him.

Watch the exhilarating final and post-race interview here!
