    I don't think that addressed the point of why not switch? Why deal with having the negatives if anything they did would medal? Why have the aboriginal od? Why have the ropes on the costumes in the fd? The whole idea of keeping the aboriginal od just Out of defiance makes no sense? Why have to wear first nations blankets in the k&c if you don't have to? Because krylova and ossianikov got away with african drums? Why deal with that? Especially if anyone had the belief that they could do anything and medal? Why not just chuck all the controversial stuff and make a positive impression?

    That's true. It would have been unrealistic for them to come up with a new OD, costumes, and have it all gel in time for the Olympics without it totally disrupting their training for the CD and FD. It's just that we have seen teams make last minute changes in the past and still do well.

    I'm probably the only one who thought Oksana Baiul's Oly LP dress was cute. I voted for Ilia Kulik's Oly monstrosity.

    Very surprised Johnny Weir's Swan SP costume is on this list. Had it been his 2010 Oly SP costume, I might have voted for that.

    No, you're not the only one. ETA: But then, I don't have any problem with Weir's tasseled getup, either.

    This costume is not particularly awful, and this skater was amazing. Too bad that she was not a good jumper

    The Kerrs switched from their country western OD (yeah, the truck drivers) back to their Scottish OD from two seasons previous--not sure if they did it for the Olys but definitely for Worlds. Don't remember what Dom/Shab did in 2007-2008 for their OD, though.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    From Olympics 2010 to worlds 2010 the Kerrs and p/b changed programs but f/s didn't and then f/s won world bronze and f/s k/k and p/b were all really even so any of those three could've won world bronze. The past involving switching programs from euros to Olympics for any team is so obscure nothing comes to mind! It had to take a while to come up with those positions that didn't bother his knee too much. They must have made some decision that the Russian dance was not possible or any recognizable cultural dance was not advisable.

    It's also different from changing the choreography or music in a OD that had a much more prescribed rhythm than doing so with the folk OD since that whole theme was incredibly broad. They would have had to change the costumes, theme, music, style of dance, etc.

    So yeah, it wasn't feasible for them to really change their OD in that time crunch, though I wish they would have been able to since that dance was just bad on many levels.
