Russian speed skater Olga Graf nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction after winning the bronze medal in the 3,000 meters in Sochi Sunday.
After her time of 4:03.37, a personal record, flashed on screen, Graf unzipped her skating suit down to her belly button and took off for a warm-down lap. It wasn't long before she realized she had nothing underneath.
"I totally forgot," Graf said via the translator. "We have very good suits and they are very tight. ... You just want to breathe and you want to take off your suit." The 30-year-old, who won Russia its first medal of the Olympics, took it in stride, adding, "Only afterward did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube. But I don't think it will be so bad."
