After winning Russia's first medal at the Sochi Olympics over the weekend, speed skater Olga Graf celebrated with a near-humiliating wardrobe malfunction.

The 30-year-old clinched the bronze medal during the women's 3,000-meter event Sunday at Adler Arena and quickly unzipped her skintight racing suit down to her bellybutton. She must've forgotten she wasn't wearing anything underneath.



"I totally forgot," Graf told The Associated Press through a translator after the race. "We have very good suits and they are very tight . . . You just want to breathe and you want to take off your suit."



"Only afterward did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube," she said. "But I don't think it will be so bad."

Despite the fashion faux pas, Graf received a personal congratulations from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"You brought an unforgettable moment of triumph and utter joy to millions of fans by taking the first medal for our team," he said in a statement.

As of Monday afternoon, Norway and the Netherlands are in the lead with seven total medals each. Canada, the U.S., and Russia are technically tied for second place with five medals each.
