Winter Olympics ice skater suffers wardrobe malfunction as costume nearly SLIPS OFF

SOUTH Korean ice skater Yura Min kept her cool to continue her dance routine despite suffering a wardrobe malfunction.


She was performing in her Olympic debut today in her home country but saw her red dress slip just seconds into the performance.

It threatened to fall off in front of millions watching around the world.

Aura was forced to keep adjusting her red sparkly top as she was spun around by partner Alexander Gamelin.

She wrote: “Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an amazing time competing in my home country!

“I promise to sew myself in for the individual event.

“I would like to thank the audience for keeping us going until the end.

“Couldn't have done it without you guys #grateful.”

In the end she finished ninth out of 10 teams.

She will compete together again in the individual pairs competition.

This comes as skate ace Elise Christie smashed the Winter Olympics 500m short-track speed skating record.
