Winter Olympics Witnessed Wardrobe Malfunction!
Yura Min, a Californian born to South Korean Parents, was determined to finish her first ever appearance in the competition and never let the sartorial setback to ruin her Olympic ambitions.
Yura Min appeared for the first time under the figure skating category alongside her partner Alexander Gamelin to compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics. However, the thing never went as they planned, and the unseen happened. The South Korean skater suffers a wardrobe malfunction.
A hook on her red dress slipped while she was over the ring performing with her partner. The first time participant and her partner Alexander had to readjust her dress many a time throughout the presentation. The pair continued to show, and finally, scored 51.97 points finishing ninth place reports BBC.
Speaking to the Free Press Miss Min said, "my hook went undone just five seconds into the routine, and "I was like Oh no!, "If that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire programme."
Yura Min said she tried to handle the situation with all grace, knowing if she stopped to fix the malfunction it would have cost her and her partner points. She continued, "This is my first Olympics and our first program, and if my top were to come down, that would have a disaster, I was nervous."
The figure skater taking down the funny side of the incident tweeted, "Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an amazing time competing in my home country! I promise to sew myself in for the individual event". She further stated, "I would like to thank the audience for keeping us going until the end. Couldn't have done it without you guys #grateful".
