Papadakis and Cizeron get silver medal in ice dance figure skating

Papadakis and Cizeron get silver medal in ice dance figure skating”

During Monday's short program, Papadakis' top came undone and her breast was exposed as she attempted to simultaneously cover up and finish the routine.

Papadakis, 22, and Cizeron, 23, still placed second with an 81.93 despite the wardrobe malfunction, and they will skate tonight in the free dance program (Tuesday morning in PyeongChang).

Gabriella Papadakis (l.) and Guillaume Cizeron (r.) won the silver medal following their record-breaking performance during the ice dance figure skating event. "My worst nightmare at the Olympics".

"The fringe being heavy, as soon as she twizzled or something she felt the top pulling away from her, so yeah, that's slightly distracting I would say".

"I told myself I didn't have a choice and that I had to keep going", Papadakis said of the incident.

Controversially the South Korea pair were handed a deduction on their run because of the malfunction, while the French pair's score was not affected.

The French duo's program began with a Latin mix of Ed Sheeran's Shape of You, and was a very crowd-pleasing, high-energy performance, until it took a turn for the worse.

American Elizabeth Swaney performed a simple routine that left many wondering how she even got to the Olympics.

She conceded afterwards that it was "hard to stay concentrated after the costume malfunctioned" but to their credit they still pulled out an impressive score. 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.

This is not the first wardrobe malfunction at this year's Winter Olympics. The performance was being shown live on global television, and people immediately began posting screen-grabs of the incident on social media.

At one point Papadakis leaned back in Cizeron's arms, causing her breast to slip above where her emerald costume covered.

Her skating parter, Cizeron, reiterated, "I think we should be proud we were able to deliver a strong performance with that happening". "That something would break or come undone", she said.
