Russian Speedskater Almost Flashes Crowd After Winning Russia's First Medal

SOCHI, Russia (AP) - A moment of triumph nearly turned embarrassing for Russian speedskater Olga Graf.

The 30-year-old gave the home country a reason to cheer Sunday, winning Russia's first medal when she took a surprising bronze in the women's 3,000 meters Sunday.

She even got a note of praise from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

When Graf's time flashed on the scoreboard - 4 minutes, 3.47 seconds was a personal best - the crowd at Adler Arena erupted in cheers. She whooped it up on her warm-down lap, then unzipped her skin-tight suit right down to the belly button.

She was wearing nothing underneath.

"I totally forgot," Graf said sheepishly 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."

When she realized her faux pas, Graf quickly zipped the suit back up with a mortified smile.

"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."
