Olympic Memories

winter-olympics-2006-1984-jayne-torvill-christopher-dean-small-81654The 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo was the last broadcast I ever watched.  That was back in the day when I thought all was well, and I was basically illiterate about world affairs or even how the world worked.

The most memorable moment from that year’s winter Olympics were the Ice Dancing finals featuring a British couple Jayne Torville and Christopher Dean.  I had never seen anything like them, and so far 30 years on, they are still remembered for their romantic gold winning performance dancing to Ravel’s Bolero.

Here is a high-quality video of that performance.
