Torvill and Dean…Still The Best?

Here it is, time for ice dancing at the Olympics.  After all of these years, I’m wondering if anyone has ever topped the performance by Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean at the 1984 Olympics.  They set the bar for all of the years that have followed, and generated a buzz about ice skating that created the near furor that enveloped that sport for more than a decade afterwards.

Watch this video and relive that moment. I think people are still competing against Bolero.
