Chinese Figure Skaters to Perform to Star Wars Music

Chinese figure skaters Xiaoyu Yu and Hao Zhang won over a number of Winter Olympic viewers on Wednesday by using music from the Star Wars franchise for their free skating pairs performance. According to The Hollywood Reporter,  Yu and Zhang's compilation track included "Luke and Leia" from the  original trilogy and "Duel of the Fates" from the prequel trilogy.  Twitter users were quick to identify the theme, with one writing, "There  was skating to 'DUEL OF THE FATES.' My God, so good." After the 2014  Olympic games in Sochi, the International Skating Union made the  decision to allow songs with lyrics on the ice. Other popular choices on  the ice this year include selections by Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.
