Olympic Skater Yura Min Recovers From a Wardrobe Malfunction

At its peak the athletes village kitchen will serve 7,000 meals daily up from a current 2,500 meals three days before the opening ceremony

"Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone", Min said, via the Detroit Free Press.

The South Korean star's skimpy red dress slipped just seconds into her short dance routine, threatening to reveal just a little too much to the millions watching around the world.

However, Min handled it with grace, knowing stopping to fix it would only cost her and her partner, Alexander Gamelin.

"I was like, 'Oh no!' " she said.

"I didn't stop. I went from the beginning to the end". "'If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off.'" Luckily, they managed to finish their performance without any further malfunction taking place.

You work your entire life to make the Olympics and when you finally get there, a hook on your outfit flies open and you've become the Janet Jackson of the Winter Games.

While competing in the figure skating team event, she only paused once while performing synchronized side-by-side spins, or twizzles, when her top began slipping forward off her shoulders. In a post on Twitter, Min got candid with fans and followers, even joking that she promises to "sew myself in for the individual event".

She added: "This is my first Olympics, our first program and if my top were to come down, that would have been a disaster". "I was very nervous that the entire thing was going to come off".

But skaters Min Yura and Alexander Gamelin told reporters after a practice session on Wednesday that they had no problem with the change, as only a couple of words from the song would be omitted without any change to the music.
