Fishy Circumstances

Ice dancing question

I watched all of the ice dancing free skate last night, all 23 couples, on one of BBC 2's digital extra channels - so no commercial interuptions (which made cooking dinner a challenge...)

Today, I find a kerfuffle of posts exclaiming how dense the Isreali team were to skate to Ravel's Bolero, a piece of music which "belongs" to no one but Torville and Dean.

Thing is, the Isreali team wasn't the only one which skated to that music last night. Another team did as well, and other than a passing Telegraph mention that two teams skated to it, I can find no listing of which teams skated to what music and, more to the point, which other team used Bolero. Help?

Update: Found it! The first of Russia's three entries in the ice dancing competition danced to a "Flamenco Bolero". It had odd extra vocal elements in it.
