Sir: I am a great fan of Torvill and Dean, but I do not agree with their decision to return to amateur competition. It might be a great boost for British skating and bring the public flocking to their local rinks. But what about the youngsters working their way up the ice dance ranks?

Britain is allowed only one couple in next year's world championships and if that is T & D, then the young ones have lost out. T & D have had their glory and surely they can see that it is someone else's turn now, especially as there are some very promising dancers around at the moment.

Yours sincerely
