On this day 27th July, 1958 Christopher Dean was born, British ice scater and Olympic Gold and Bronze Medal winner. (Torvill & Dean - 1984 Olympics ) I haven't watched their stunning performance of Bolero for some time but it always thrills me.
If ice dancing is on this list, you know it had to be spectacular. And that's exactly what Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean were. The British pair gave a performance for the ages at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics. They did not begin skating for the first 18 seconds of the music so as not to exceed the time limit for a routine. In the end, Torvill and Dean received 12 perfect 6.0s for their free skate routine, including a 6.0 from every judge in the artistic impression category.
