Figure Skater Yura Min Suffered An Unfortunate Wardrobe Malfunction During Winter Olympics (VIDEO)
Whether it’s the Winter Olympics or Summer Olympics, if you’re competing, you would love for everything to go off without a hitch. Unfortunately for Yura Min, it didn’t quite happen that way for her.
During her Olympics debut in PyeongChang, Min had a very unfortunate wardrobe malfunction after her costume came busting open in the back, threatening to fall right off and expose her breasts to the world.
“Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone,” Min said, via the Detroit Free Press. “I was like, ‘Oh no!’ If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire program.”
As they say, the show must go on. That’s exactly what she and her partner did, as they continued on with the routine and finished it off.
“I didn’t stop,” Min said. “I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t stop because you get a deduction if you stop in the middle of a program. In my head, I was thinking, ‘Is it better to stop and fix it and get the deduction or keep going?’
“The fans kept cheering. Obviously, this is my first Olympics. I don’t want to let loose. I was terrified. I tried my best to keep it together.”
There’s no telling if the malfunction hurt them or not, but they went on to score 51.97 points and placed ninth out of 10 teams.
