How figure skaters choose their music, explained with Adam Rippon



2018 Olympic medalist Adam Rippon, and music designer Hugo Chouinard helps explain how figure skaters pick their music.

The 1932 Winter Olympics was the first time figure skating was performed to music. Today, music is an essential part of the sport and there’s a hidden strategy behind how they pick their songs. For a long time, figure skaters skated to classics like Carmen, Swan Lake, and Don Quixote. Not only because it’s great music but because of the clear story line and the dynamic characters in them. But this is all changing. In 2014, the ISU changed the music rules to allow skaters to skate to music with lyrics.
