Olga Graf won Russia’s first medal at the Sochi Games for speed skating. However, she will likely be remembered more for a wardrobe malfunction that happened on camera.
This is quite important for Russia since in that discipline they didn’t have medals for already over 20 years. Olga Graf won a bronze medal in the women’s 3,000 meters.
Perhaps forgetting, she then proceeded to unzip her skin-tight suit down to her belly button before she realized she wasn’t wearing anything under.
Her eyes widened with embarrassment and Graf quickly zipped back up. It’s not like much was seen, let’s say much less than what you see in a revealing evening dress.
“I totally forgot,” said Olga Graf, 30 yrs old, through a translator. “We have very good suits and they are very tight. … You just want to breathe and you want to take off your suit.”
“Only afterward,” she said, “did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube. But I don’t think it will be so bad.”
She was right, it appeared! But common, she’s sexy and amazing, why not show off some skin? She did absolutely nothing wrong, even though some call it strip tease.
Congratulations for winning!
