Supermodel Cindy Crawford and her family joined Italian skiing legend Alberto Tomba at a restaurant in Whistler, British Columbia on the first competition day of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Tomba, a five-time Olympic medalist, declared that he has two great passions: skiing and wine. He demonstrated his expertise with a saber when he easily uncorked a bottle of champagne with a single dramatic stroke. When he invited Cindy to try her hand, she wasn’t quite as successful. The skiing star effortlessly opened the next bottle with a quick slash from the small sword as the most successful cover girl in history laughed.
Alberto Tomba and Cindy Crawford then raised their glasses with OMEGA president Stephen Urquhart in a toast to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
Tomba is in British Columbia as special correspondent for Sky Television and is also participating in some special promotional activities; Cindy Crawford is making several appearances on behalf of OMEGA for whom she has been a brand ambassador since 1995.
OMEGA is the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games, a role it is assuming for the 24th time since 1932.
