LOS ANGELES (AP) — Apolo Anton Ohno is still pondering a final run at the Olympics.

With barely a year to go until the Sochi Games, the most decorated U.S. winter athlete is weighing what role he wants to play in 2014.

Ohno plans to be in Russia for the games, either competing or working in an off-ice gig.

The short-track speedskater who first took the world by storm at the 2002 Winter Olympics as the star of a sport known as roller derby on ice will be 31 in Sochi. He's been contemplating retirement ever since he earned his eighth career medal three years ago in Vancouver.

But the internal debate goes on.
