This Olympic Ice Dancer Powered Through a Wardrobe Malfunction Like a Total Pro

“I guarantee to stitch myself in for a particular event,” South Korean ice dancer Yura Min wrote on Twitter.

Let Olympic ice dancer Yura Min uncover we how to redeem expertly from a habit malfunction.

As Min strike a ice with her partner Alexander Gamelin on Sunday, her dress became unhooked only seconds into their routine.

“I was like, ‘Oh no!’” she told The Detroit Free Press. “If that comes undone, a whole thing could only cocktail off. we was shocked a whole program.”

While Min, who has twin citizenship in South Korea and a United States, could have stopped to repair a clasp, she didn’t wish to remove points. “This is my initial Olympics, a initial module and if my tip were to come down, that would have been a disaster,” she said.

So she powered on and managed to equivocate any some-more snafus by skating with her shoulders behind and conduct hold high. Unfortunately a unbending behind doesn’t make for a fluid, graceful ice dance and a pair, who were competing for South Korea, placed nearby a bottom of a rankings, 9th out of 10 competitors. Min took a habit malfunction in stride, though. “I guarantee to stitch myself in for a particular event,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday, adding a shouting emoji. “I would like to appreciate a assembly for gripping us going until a end. Couldn’t have finished it but we guys.”

Min’s cooperative response should acquire her points with fans, if not a judges. Min might be fine with that, though. Last week she told The Boston Globe that she and her partner were during a Olympics for a experience, not a tip prize. “We’re not going for a award or anything, so there’s not that most vigour on us,” she said. “We only wish to have fun.”
