They skated to a piece of music called “Bolero” by Ravel and scored a perfect score – achieving twelve 6.0’s from the judges. Something which has never again been achieved

Why they are my heroes....

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean are my heroes because they achieved PERFECT at the Olympic Games. Their routine of Bolero is famous and very inspiring. I love watching all their old routines as they made every routine perfect.

They changed the face of their sport with new and creative ideas, were extremely hard working and are great role models for British sport.
