Retired Olympian Apolo Ohno treated himself to a romantic vacation in Maui, Hawaii with his mystery girlfriend after competing in the Ironman World Championship event in Kona on October 11With his buff body on show in just a pair of black Nike boardshorts, the muscular star had no trouble sweeping his gorgeous girl off her feet, the raven-haired beauty laughing and smiling as her man scooped her up in his arms in a tender embrace. The 32-year-old couldn't wipe the smile from his face as he took to the beach with his lady love, showing off his impressive physique in the process following months of training for the gruelling race Complementary couple: It seems not only is Apolo a fitness buff, but so too is his other half, who displayed her own trim and toned physique in a fun tiger-print bandeau bikini top and skimpy string bottoms Though the pair didn't have the best weather during their stay, with the star sharing a number of photos and videos of the overcast skies, rough sea and even a rainstorm that hit during a hike the previous day, they seemed blissfully unaware - clearly just thrilled to be in each other's company.
