Apparrently No one has told Shaun what happened to Alberto Tomba in the 1988 Calgary olympics. Tomba won two Alpine Gold medals and afterwards said he would like to meet Katarina Witt, the skater. He bragged that he wanted to see her skate first and if she didn’t win a Gold Medal he would give her one of his.

Witt won her gold medal and afterwards was introduced to Tomba. During the brief introduction she was told that Tomba had said all he wanted to do after winning two gold medals all he wanted to do was meet her.

Witt pretty much just blew him off and walked away.

I guess there was a reason why so many reporters called her The Ice Queen.
