French Ice Dancer Suffers ‘Nightmare’ Wardrobe Malfunction (See photos)
French ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis said her “worst nightmare” came true Monday, February 19, after suffering a wardrobe malfunction that left her breast exposed at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
The 22-year-old was skating to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” when a lift by her partner Guillaume Cizeron resulted in her costume becoming undone and exposing her breast. But rather than allow the accident to shatter her Olympic dreams, the athlete powered through her short program, and the duo came in second place with 81.93 points.
“I felt it right away and I prayed,” Papadakis told reporters after the routine. “That’s about what I could do.”
