Olympic figure skater Yura Min overcomes wardrobe malfunction with calm and class

That might not seem like that big of a deal, but as Min told Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press it was a hook that held the entire outfit together.

You know that stereotypical dream people have where they give a huge presentation standing in front of a crowd and they're totally naked?

And yet that nightmare nearly became reality for Yura Min on Sunday. Unfortunately for Yura Min, it didn't quite happen that way for her. She was especially vulnerable during her twizzles, a synchronized side-by-side move. As Min was expertly doing her routine, the top of her dress decided that it would be the ideal time to disconnect in the back.

The 22-year-old's outfit came undone at the back soon after she took to the ice, leaving her anxious it would fall off during her routine.

"Anytime she brought her shoulders in, it came down", he said. "I was very nervous that the entire thing was going to come off".

The 22-year-old Californian-born athlete and her skating partner, Alexander Gamelin, had quite the nightmare during Sunday's ice skating event when one of her moves early nearly immediately into the routine had her glitzy red top falling out of place.

And it's not just singers or actresses that experience wardrobe malfunctions - Olympic athletes do too.

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.

Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the reigning world champions, came in first with 80.51 points.

Riedell Shoes, Inc., is among the companies that sponsor both Min and Gamelin, who will return to the rink on February 19 for the individual ice dance competition.

Min was determined not to stop in the midst of the performance, however, and instead changed her movements so her arms would be kept back, preventing her costume from falling off.
