Biografia

Jayne TORVILL

Jayne Torvill and her partner Christopher Dean broke the Russian domination of ice skate dancing and mesmerised the world with their interpretation of Ravel’s Bolero.

Russian domination broken

At the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Games, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean of Nottingham, England, won the ice dance competition. This was the first time that the competition had been won by a non-Russian couple.

Ravel’s Bolero

The British couple mesmerised the world with their breathtaking 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.

Clever timing

The couple managed to present their 4-minute 28-second dance despite the fact that the time limit was 4 minutes 10 seconds. They did this by moving their bodies to the music for 18 seconds before they started skating.
