We had won three world championships by the time the 1984 Winter Olympics came around, so we were in a position to take a real risk.

They are simply the best ever. Charlie White and Meryl Davis are the next great ones to come along but there will never be another Torvill and Dean.

Very interesting reading, learning what it is like being on tour. Also, seeing what it is like getting along with everyone associated with the shows is an eye-opener.

Thoroughly satisfying account of this famous ice-skating
pair's beginnings and career, leading up to the 1994
Olympics and beyond. This book provides wonderfully
intimate insights into how Chris and Jayne think and behave

long-overdue book, which answers many questions we have
about Torvill and Dean: Were they ever romantically
involved? What did they really think about winning the
bronze medal at the 1994 Olympics? Will they retire in the
near future? Newcomers to the iceskating world will learn
the fascinating quirks and coincidences that paved the road
to championship for this pair.
