If I were a coach not only I will say them, I will prepare them if something like this happened a competiton. For example Soloviev fell before their step sequence at GPF 2012. They continued their program. They lost timing and speed. Levels and GOE effected by this. You can see this if you look at the protocols. But if they were stopped and Soloviev says the referee something happened his legs after the fall, they will have 3 minutes and with that also speed and timing going into the steps. Skaters don't skate their full programs at training so its not that hard to skate after the break. Soloviev didn't do this so when you looked the protocols you see a mistake. You can't see this 4CC and WJC protocols.
