Christopher Dean, a Nottingham policeman, began his competitive ice dancing career with Sandra Elson as his partner and together they won the British junior title in 1974. The following year, Dean teamed up with Jayne Torvill and they won their first British championship three years later. In 1980 they finished fifth at the Olympic Games and in 1981 established themselves as performers of the highest class by winning the European and World Championships.
