Planning on watching the Winter Olympics? Be sure to turn your volume up. For the first time ever, Olympic figure skaters in Pyeongchang will be allowed to perform to music with lyrics. This has been allowed in the ice dance category since the 1990s, but now dozens of traditional pairs and singles skaters can also break free of instrumental.
Eric Radford is a world champion Olympic pairs skater and a trained pianist. He talks to Tom Power about his decision to use vocal music in Pyeongchang.
