Yura Min Makes Promise For Next Event After Wardrobe Malfunction

Yura Min dancing in the Olympics.

The figure skater made a promise for her next event.

Yura Min's first skate at the 2018 Winter Olympics featured an unfortunate event. She had a wardrobe malfunction.

Min and her skating partner, Alexander Gamelin, handled the issue with class. They battled through it.

The dual-citizen of the United States and South Korea spoke to reporters about what happened. From the Detroit Free-Press:

“I was like, ‘Oh no!’” she told the paper. “If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off. I was terrified the entire program."

Min and Gamelin's routine surely suffered because of the issue, unfortunately. They were able to finish the routine, but the score wasn't great.

The judges gave the pair a score of 51.97 points. That was good for 9th place.

The issue began early in the routine and didn't really stop. Check it out:

Min made a funny promise after the event. She's going to do her own sewing next time. "Despite the wardrobe malfunction, I had an amazing time competing in my home country! I promise to sew myself in for the individual event," she says.

There will be a next time, too. Min is set to compete in the individual pairs event at the end of the month.
