1 day ago En
Eight time Olympic winner Apolo Anton Ohno discusses his journey to becoming the most decorated US Winter Olympian in history. Reinvention is at the core of Apolo Anton Ohno. At just 14 years old, he claimed his first major speed skating title at the US Championships -- he had begun training just 6 months prior. Over the next decade and a half, he went from child-prodigy to the most decorated US Winter Olympian in history—a title he still holds—earning eight Olympic medals in Short-Track Speed Skating across the 2002, 2006, and 2010 Winter Games. Apolo’s life had been defined not just by performing at the highest possible level in various arenas, but also by his regular pursuit of new goals and challenges, all while maintaining his iconic positive attitude and unmatched energy. Now, he is helping others reinvent themselves by defining their motivation and encouraging them to exceed what they believe to be possible in both life and in business. Moderated by Mike Abrams.

Veteran journalist Leslie Streeter discusses her new book, "Black Widow: A sad-funny journey through grief for people who normally avoid books with words like 'journey' in the title". Ahead of its debut, "Black Widow" has already made Glamour Magazine's list of the top-20 books to read in 2020. Leslie's book is for anyone who has lost someone. Although grief is universal, her experience was that there wasn't anyone reflecting a black voice in this space when she lost her young husband unexpectedly to an aneurysm and was left to raise their baby on her own. She says, "It's not just a black book. It's a book by a black person about a thing that happens to everyone." She aims to make the conversation around grief less uncomfortable through her sharp wit.

The Cambridge Spies continue to fascinate - but one of them, John Cairncross, has always been more of an enigma than the others. He worked alone and was driven by his hostility to Fascism rather than the promotion of Communism. During his war-time work at Bletchley Park, he passed documents to the Soviets which went on to influence the Battle of Kursk. In this Talks at Google event, historian Geoff Andrews introduces his new book, "Agent Moliere: The Life of John Caincross, the Fifth Man of the Cambridge Spy Circle", the first full account of Cairncross’ spying and of his subsequent confession and dramatic public exposure. With access to the Cairncross papers, and following discussions with Cairncross’ friends, relatives and former colleagues, a complex individual emerges - a scholar as well as a spy, whose motivations have often been misunderstood. After his resignation from the Civil Service, Cairncross moved to Italy and rebuilt his life as a foreign correspondent, editor and university professor. This gave him new circles and friendships – which included the writer Graham Greene – while he always lived with the fear that his earlier espionage would come to light.
