Remembering British Olympic Ice Dancing Champions Torvill and Dean

The quintessential ice dance by the legendary Torvill & Dean dancing to Bolero in the 1984 Olympics (Sarajevo). The only couple to score 6.0 from all judges, they won the gold medal. This still gives me goosebumps every time I watch it. And the location in Sarajevo is poignant - the crowning moment for a city about to be plunged into destruction.
