Ice dancers who intend to compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will not be able to incorporate reggae music in their performances.

They have also been cautioned about wearing “sheer materials”.

According to The Straits Times, International Skating Union (ISU) technical committee official Shawn Rettstatt stated “Costumes need to be appropriate for an athletic ladies competition. The torso must be covered appropriately”.

Skaters will be allowed to use Latin American rhythms of rhumba, samba, mambo, cha cha, meringue, salsa and bachata.

However, Halina Gordon-Poltorak, ice dance technical committee chairperson did not mince her words when she categorically stated that all types of reggae are not allowed.

She also stated that the use of hip-hop will trigger a deduction.
