Here's that quote, and a little tidbit about Katarina Witt

"I used to have a wild time with three women until 5 A.M.," he said. "But in this Olympic Village I will live it up with five women until 3 A.M."

Whatever his boasts about his ski life and his love life, Alberto Tomba has usually backed it up. Except for Katarina Witt's brushoff. Moments after the-then East German figure skater won the 1988 gold medal at Calgary, he arrived in a black overcoat with the collar turned up around his black hair, measured her with his green eyes, and handed her a bouquet of roses and an autographed poster of himself on which he had drawn a picture of a heart.

"To the dear Katerina," he had written. "Best regards. Ciao. Alberto Tomba."

He had misspelled her name, using an "e" in the middle. So much for that romance.
