Apolo Anton Ohno liked his kalua pig and squid lu'au when he tried Hawaiian food at Ono Hawaiian Food, of course during his first visit to Hawai'i for the 2006 Victor Awards, where he will receive honors.

After lunch, the short-track speed skater and five-time Olympic medalist talked story with Special Olympic athletes before Mayor Mufi Hannemann presented him with the key to the city.

"It feels really good," he said after being in town for a day. "I look forward to coming back."

What's in store for Ohno? "I'm still thinking about the possibility of competing again," he said.
