Apolo Ohno’s birthday was yesterday — but the fact he’s an unbelievable dude with a heart of gold has been around for YEARS.

This skater boy (okay, he’s an ice skater not an ollie-flipping boarder), just turned 33 years old.

In case you didn’t know, Apolo Ohno basically wins at life. How so, you say? Well, he literally can’t stop winning.

In 1997, he was precocious enough to win the U.S. short-track speed skating championship. Then, over the course of three Winter Olympics, he won a record eight medals for a U.S. Winter Olympian.

And then, he took TV by storm by joining this little unheard of show called Dancing with the Stars for the shows fourth season. And. He. Won. The whole thing. He won the whole freakin’ thing, like the pro he is.

Ohno? More like oh yes.

But let’s get back to business: Apolo is another year older, so I’ve compiled all the reasons why he’s winning life — and why you should try and be even a little bit more like him:

Trendsetter, Jet setter… all this photo needs is an Irish setter, and that’s literally all the setters in the world right in front of you.

Nothing like a private jet to start your birthday off right, right?

Apolo is the best son ever.

Happy Mother’s Day to this guy 🙂 He always was mom and dad to me while growing up. Put up with my crazy antics as a kid, and even today-still unconditionally loves and supports me. I’ve been so blessed in this life for a Dad whom I can remember bringing home “Happy Mother’s Day” cards to because the other kids in school asked me where my mom was. I proudly always said, it’s just my Dad and Meeee! so just like when I was 6 years old, Happy Mothers Day Dad!

Apolo was raised by his father. His parents divorced when he was a baby, so he grew up with just his dad in Seattle. He was born in 1982 and it wasn’t long before he started his Olympic training — in just 1996.

His dad is a hairstylist who worked 12 hour days to support them. Incredible!

Off the rink, Apolo is also an incredible motivational speaker.

A good man in heart and soul. I go more in-depth about his charitable work a little later — trust me, it deserves its own section!

Leave it to Apolo to cheer up my day up with this great quote.

Monday let’s get it!!!!

I hope you didn’t mind the wait, he’s the busiest man on the planet.

Seriously, he even does Ironman Championships.

As a sports legend, he’s basically a superstar at any sports event.

Love all day!!! @seahawks

This makes perfect sense, seeing as he’s from Seattle and all!

And don’t forget about his incredible charity work.

And don

Apolo is a hero on and off the ice.

The best part is that he doesn’t want your money going to somewhere you can’t see it make a difference. He’s a spokesman SeeYourImpact.org, a nonprofit organization. It lets you donate directly to someone in need. It even sends messages “to show exactly how their gift is making a difference.”

Here’s what he said about it:

SeeYourImpact.org was first brought to me by a close friend who has been involved with philanthropic work for many years, and he said, “Apolo, I know you are involved with a lot of different charitable organizations, but this is one that can help change billions of lives around the world.”

I was always interested in affecting the lives within my community, and this is something that is the future of philanthropic giving, so I was very excited about it. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how much money you’ve made or how much money you are going to make, but how you can give back. Utilizing my success for a positive benefit, to help others, is something that really interested me.

Basically, 100 percent of a donation goes to the gift the person selects. Doesn’t that sound like the right way to do good, or what?

That’s not all.

Here is a list of other charities he’s involved with:

  • Ronald McDonald House – 2002
  • Gap/Project RED in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa – 2006
  • Raised $20,000 for Japanese elders who live in the Pacific Northwest that are without the insurance they need to survive/have a proper quality of life
  • Math Moves U Hippest Homework Happening w/ Senator Ted Kennedy – 2006
  • Salvation Army
  • Clothes Off Our Backs Campaign
  • Miracles For Kids

With that much positive karma and good will, it’s no wonder Apolo can live like every day is his birthday!

Don’t forget to find him on social media — where he’s super active and open about his life:
