Ye Qiaobo Quotes

I spend so many times for skating, and I gave up so many hobbies for this ... the Olympics are four years in time. And I am old.
Ye Qiaobo (b. 1965), Chinese ice skater. As quoted in Time magazine, p. 50 (February 24, 1992). The first Chinese athlete ever to win a Winter Olympics medal, Qiaobo had just won two silvers and, in tears, expressed her disappointment and frustration at not winning a gold. At the next Olympics, she would be thirty-one, perhaps too old to compete.
