Figure skater Yura Min’s wardrobe malfunction

The South Korean ice dancer Yura Min and her partner Alexander Gamelin had just started their routine in the team competition when Min noticed the clasp on her back was undone.

That might not seem like that big of a deal, but as Min told Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press it was a hook that held the entire outfit together. Min said she was “terrified” and that she couldn’t do the entire routine as planned because bringing her arms together would mean bringing her top down.
