''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).

At the next Olympics, she would be thirty-one, perhaps too old to compete.
