Christopher  DEAN
Revolutionary Ice Dancer








The 1984 Sarajevo Games marked the only time that the Olympic ice dance competition was won by a non-Russian couple. Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean of Nottingham, England, mesmerized the audience with their interpretation of Maurice Ravel's Bolero. The judges awarded them 12 scores of 6.0 out of 18 marks, including across-the-board perfect scores for artistic impression. The couple managed to present their 4-minute 28-second dance despite the fact that the time limit was 4 minutes 10 seconds by moving their bodies to the music for 18 seconds before they started skating. Torvill and Dean returned to the Olympics in 1994 and placed third.
