Points
  • Have you ever watched a figure skating program that truly took your breath away' The best routines are a stunning combination of dizzying spins, graceful choreography, and impossible-looking jumps landed on the thinnest of blades.
  • Set it all to music, and you get, well, pure art.
  • Today, figure skaters can get pretty creative with their accompaniment, choosing from a variety of genres and styles, but until just a few years ago, it was a different story.
  • Not until the 2014 Olympics did the International Skating Union (ISU) start allowing figure skaters to use music with vocals and lyrics in their performances.
  • (Ice dancing has allowed music with lyrics since the 1997-1998 season.) Let's just say it was the right choice.
