Speed skaters wear skin-tight jumpsuits that allow them to zoom across the ice with as little drag as possible. There’s little to no chance that a body part is going to slip out of that aerodynamic getup unless the athlete, say, actively unzips the thing.
And that’s exactly what Russian speed skater Olga Graf did at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. After completing a 3,000-meter race, Graf’s time appeared on the scoreboard and proved good enough to secure her a bronze medal. She celebrated with a victory lap, and when she was done, Graf unzipped her suit from the neck to her belly button. Why?
“They are very tight,” she said (via Bleacher Report). “You just want to breathe and you want to take off your suit.”
That’s understandable and totally not a big deal, except for the fact that Graf forgot she wasn’t wearing anything underneath. “Only afterward did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube,” she said. “But I don’t think it will be so bad.”
