The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics aren’t just becoming the Olympics of botched hotel accommodations, they’re quickly becoming the Olympics of wardrobe malfunctions.
Or maybe I should say near wardrobe malfunctions.
As you’ll likely recall, a few days ago, Russian speed skater Ulga Graf unzipped her suit as she skated around during her celebratory lap, completely forgetting she had nothing on underneath. Thankfully nothing catastrophic happened and Graf didn’t experience complete embarrassment – though she did grab headlines.
That wasn’t the only speed skating wardrobe issue in recent days though as a Japanese speed skater seemed to have a bit of a problem with her thong. The issue? It was completely visible through her suit.
With just fractions of seconds often deciding races, speed skaters do everything they can to gain a competitive advantage – even as going as far to wind test their suits years before the games. Maybe this speed skater was opting to go with the more traditional idea of distraction?
Seriously – they couldn’t have done something about that? Like, you know, find a matching color? Or built something into the suit?
