(I would think that, ironically, B&S would still have come out ahead, but who knows?) Apologies if this subject has already been discussed. Just wondering.
    Many people have tried, but failed miserably because requirements, levels etc. change each season and many elements as they were done in 2002 (lifts, jumping sequences, twists) simply wouldn't count.

    Haven't watched S&P's SP in a while, but they might not have gotten the 2.0 deduction for a fall. IIRC Bazarova & Larionov fell on the end pose of the 2012 World SP and didn't get a deduction because it was after the program was considered over.

    They S/P fall was after his last pose. B/L on the other hand was during the last pose (he hadn't completed it yet) and should have been deducted for it.

    It is possible, I just watched it. The music had ended before they fall, though the beginning of the slip was happening while the music was still going, and it looked like it happened 2:39-2:40 after they had started the program according to the Youtube timer, literally during the last second of time allowed for the SP at that time.

    I read a reference to a non-enforced rule about ice dancers not being allowed to wear their costumes to official practices. Does anyone know why this was a rule and why it was unenforced?

    Here is a clip with the entire "George of the Jungle" routine by Candeloro. It was a very long program.

    My guess is that someone did not approve of the escalation in practice wear that happened in ice dance mostly during the 90s. I remember Torvill & Dean being stunned when starting their 94 comeback upon being told how many fancy dresses Jane would need just for practices. In the other disciplines, you see ladies in black and gray Tshirts and leotards (except for final practices) but in dance, they needed full hair and makeup, jewelry and dresses only slightly simpler than their competition dresses. Apparently the thinking was that since the judges were there watching practices and the event was largely won or lost by their conversations with each other at the boards, ice dancers needed to look their best, since ice dance judging is largely whim-based anyway.

    So, maybe this rule was the ISU's way of taking issue with the notion that judges were pre-judging dance based on practices.
