Eight-time Olympic speed skating medalist Apolo Anton Ohno is coming to the Arlington Science Focus School to speak to students about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the dangers of underage drinking.

Ohno, the country’s most decorated Winter Olympian, is scheduled to visit the school on Tuesday, April 20. His visit is sponsored by the Arlington-based Century Council, a liquor industry-funded group that fights drunk driving and underage drinking.

    Huh? There’s no Arlington Science Focus Middle school!

    • That’s right, good catch. We got the “middle school” part from the Century Council web site.

    Apolo was there representing century counsel promoting healthy living and against underage drinking. Funny thing is Century counsel distributes liquor. Slick lobbying.
