In the skating category, I'd nominate the ice dancers Jayne Torvill
and Christopher Dean. They brought an extremely creative approach to
ice dancing, along with excellent technical skills. As well, they did
much of their own choreography, and I still remember some of their
programs from 20 years ago.

From Wikipedia:

Torvill and Dean are a famous innovative British ice dancing team,
consisting of Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. They became the only
figure skating team to ever receive artistic impression scores of 6.0
across the board from every judge, in the 1984 Winter Olympics. This
achievement is unlikely to ever be matched, as the scoring system has
been completely revamped....Becoming professionals after 1984, they
retired from Olympic competition, returning briefly in 1994 ten years
later to collect their last Olympic medal, when the competition rules
were relaxed, allowing professionals. They retired from competition
skating in 1999, but they continue to work professionally, both
together and separately.
