Russian Speedskater Olga Graf Nearly Flashed Everyone After Winning A Medal (PHOTOS)

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."

I don't see the big deal. She has a tan shirt on under her suit. I don't know why anyone hasn't see it in the pic. You can clearly see the V neck.

Thats a necklace you're seeing.
It looks like she has on 2 necklaces.
The short one (the one I assume you think is the vneck) has a cross hanging from it.
Then there is a longer one as well.

Wardrobe Malfunction? No. A WM is when something fails. She unzipped on purpose, and I find it difficult to think she forgot she had no bloomers on. Either way, send the young lady to my house! I will see that the proper spankings are applied in a timely and efficient manner! Lol!

Stand in line Tommy. With that sweet face and tight body, strong legs, I'm betting she would be a great partner to make love to. She's a little hottie. Obviously not all Russian women look like Boris. LOL

Her smile was not mortified, what was revealed was about an inch to two inches of midsection of breast bone...sum effect consequence of unzipping is zero hilarious! So like, really, totally NON-HILARIOUS...but what was really revealed is a knee jerk reflex to degrade another country's Olympian and belittle her victory....C'mon now biased Media, the Cold War is over and has completely relocated to a new address--US Congress which is totally mortifying and hilarious considering that the so called 'World Leader of Freedom and Democracy' is having epileptic spasms over raising a minimum wage by like 35c and calling our country a dictatorship so that regular folk can have health coverage! I hope I've provided good evidence as to where to apply frivolous irresponsible adjectives like mortified and hilarious! Congratulations Olga Graf! You are a great athlete, Olympian and a Winner! There, said by an American despite his Congress!

This was NOT a malfunction. She unzipped her suit, the zipper did not fail. Learn the difference people. A dress blowing up in the wind is not a malfunction either.

Nothing abnormal or "shocking" was shown here. So, this (like many stories in the modern media) is just more pointless news. Most athletes don't wear anything under their body suits anyhow, for obvious competition reasons. As she stated, she was winded and the suits are very tight and constrictive. (In summary, they are not the most comfortable things to wear, especially when you have just run a very tiring race!) So, she unzipped some to be able to breathe and relax. Big whoop! Did she whip out her **** or flash her nether-regions to everyone? No. So seriously, who cares?! Social media sure jumps on everything unimportant these days. Guess it's just the little "perversion" that's lerking within most everyone (males and females alike) that just hoped to see more displayed of this fit and triumphant woman athlete. Good grief!

I didn't see anything the female models don't show everyday. She was excited to have won her race and was not thinking. At least she remembered and zipped her suit up. Not like you see on the Kardaitrashions family.

Agreed. and as red as her face appears after her match, she may have desperately needed to vent her suit in order to cool, for fear of fainting from too much internal heat build up from the race. I have had time during a sporting event where I have had to remove myself to a place to remove clothing in order to keep from passing out due to excessive heat.

If she unzipped it any further you might have seen her balls!
