Pic of the Week

For this one we have to rewind the clock more than 23 years! It's February 14th 1984. Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean give what is still referred to today as the greatest Ice Dance performance of all time!

"Tonight we reached the pinnacle. I don't remember the performance at all. It just happened. But I think it was the most emotional performance we have ever given. What just happened out there - getting the medals - that is what we've worked for so hard for so long" Dean said.

Torvill added: "I just don't believe it. I don't think we'll get to bed tonight at all."

The music was Ravel's Bolero and to this day anyone who picks that music to skate too is held to the Torvill and Dean standard.
