A South Korean figure skater was just left humiliated at the Winter Olympics after she suffered a nightmare wardrobe malfunction in front of millions of people.
The U.K. Sun reported that skater Yura Min’s red dress slipped just seconds into her short dance routine threatening to reveal just a little too much as millions of people looked on. As she was spun around by partner Alexander Gamelin, Min had to keep readjusting her top to prevent the wardrobe malfunction from revealing too much.
At one point, the top slipped a little too far, but instead of losing it, Min just carried on with her well-rehearsed routine. Commentators praised Min, who was competing in the figure skating team event, for recovering with so much grace and style.
Min, who is a dual citizen of South Korea and the United States, later explained that the hook on her top came undone just seconds into her routine.
“I was like, ‘Oh no!’” she said. “If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off. I was terrified the entire programme.”
Min was determined not to stop the routine, however, and instead changed her movements so her arms would be kept back, preventing her costume from falling off. Her only pause came during the twizzles when her top began slipping off her shoulder.
“It started to come down so I had to stop my twizzle and pull it back up,” she revealed.
Min and her partner, who will compete together again at the individual pairs competition later this month, finished ninth out of 10 teams. First place went to Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the reigning world champions, with 80.51 points.
We applaud Min for persevering after this setback! What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
