The French ice skating team of Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron suffered an unfortunate ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during their short program on the ice today as the hook on the 22-year-old’s green-and-yellow costume came undone, causing the pro athlete to suffer a pretty serious nipple slip.

The pair didn’t lose their concentration and the young woman reattached her costume and the French favorites completed their performance.

Even with the wardrobe malfunction, France still finished above the beloved American duo Alex and Maia Shiutani.

France received a whopping 81.93, placing them second behind Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada

Miss Papadakis said after the top of her costume became unhooked and slipped: “I felt it right away and I prayed.”

“It was pretty distracting, kind of my worst nightmare happening at the Olympics. I told myself: ‘I don’t have a choice. I have to keep going.’ And that’s what we did. I think we can be proud of ourselves being able to deliver a great performance with that happening.”

US broadcaster NBC, aware of the backlash after the infamous Janet Jackson nipple slip at the Super Bowl in 2004, issued a statement for its viewers afterwards: “once a competitor’s brief wardrobe issue became evident, we purposely used wider camera shots and carefully selected replays to keep the issue obscured”.
