SOCHI, Russia (CBS DC/AP) — One Russian speed skater almost had a Janet Jackson Super Bowl moment.
Olga Graf, who won the bronze medal in the women’s 3,000-meter event at the Winter Olympics, unzipped her skin-tight suit at the end of her run to celebrate, not realizing she was exposing part of her chest and stomach down to her belly button with no shirt underneath.

“I totally forgot,” Graf told The Associated Press. “We have very good suits and they are very tight. You just want to breathe and you want to take off your suit.”
She immediately zipped her suit back up when she realized she was nearly putting on a show for the entire world.
“Only afterward did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube,” she told the AP.
Netherlands’ Ireen Wust took the gold in the 3,000 meters, becoming the first openly gay athlete to claim the top prize in Sochi.
