After completing her history-making race in the women's 3000-meter speedskating event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russian speedskater Olga Graf almost made headlines for another reason. Though she became the first Russian woman to receive a medal for this event (Bronze), the athlete had a brief wardrobe malfunction that almost led to a revealing moment for the Olympics!

As you can see from the photo above, the excited Olympian pulled the front zipper of her skating suit down to her navel, thus exposing a lot of skin. Though many viewers might have missed this, her reactions to realizing what she had done made it pretty apparent as she zipped it back up.
"I totally forgot," Graf explained 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."
She added: "Only afterward did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube. But I don't think it will be so bad."
It isn't so bad, Olga. Don't worry. But you can watch the highlight of the incident HERE and check out some funny GIFs below!
Meanwhile, despite grabbing attention for this wardrobe malfunction, Graf made history! Before she unzipped her suit, she had just taken the lead in the women's 3000-meter event, thus putting her in line for a podium spot. Luckily for her, she ended up placing in third and received the bronze medal. This was the first time a Russian woman took home a medal in this event, and she did it in front of her homeland!
