French Ice Dance Duo Overcome 'Nightmare' Wardrobe Malfunction To Win Silver Medal

Gabriella Papadakis held her nerve to post an impressive score despite the costume malfunction

Her dress's top strap appeared to come unclasped from around her neck, and it resulted in part of her left breast, a la Janet Jackson at the 2004 Super Bowl, being briefly exposed on the ice. Earlier on, South Korean Min Yura also had her dress come unhooked and was forced to carry on nearly the entirety of her routine while constantly readjusting her dress to keep covered.

"But it won't knock her down", Papadakis said.

"It was my worst nightmare happening at the Olympics. That's what we did, and we have to be proud of ourselves, delivering a great performance".

French figure skater Gabriella Papadakis experienced a wardrobe malfunction Monday during Olympics competition, as the world's eyes were fixated on Pyeongchang.

"It's frustrating to lose points just because of a costume problem", she said.

"It was hard to stay concentrated after the wardrobe malfunction we suffered", Cizeron tweeted, though they still managed to finish their programme less than two points behind leaders Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada.

Hopefully they'll avoid having another accident for the free dance on Tuesday and luckily the malfunction didn't set them back too far.

Applauded by the crowd, she added: "I felt [the break] straight away, and I just prayed".

Papadakis and Cizeron were both really happy with their performance on way to the silver medal. However, we salute her for brilliant performance in spite of the unfortunate incident.

Papadakis and Cizeron vowed to come back strongly from the incident, which left Papadakis in tears as she was questioned by reporters.

Though Papadakis' wardrobe malfunction pulled focus from the duo's performance, they could still win the gold.

Virtue and Moir, skating to a medley of "Sympathy for the Devil", "Oye Como Va", and "Hotel California", broke their own world record with a score of 83.67.

"It was was my worst nightmare happening at the Olympics", Gabriella later said, as reported by Yahoo! "I promise to sew myself in for the individual event". The couple would have lost five points for stopping the routine, so they chose to continue.
