SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- After winning the bronze in the women's 3,000-meter speed skate, she pumped her arms into the air and started to unzip her suit, only to remember there was nothing underneath.

Only a bit of skin was revealed and it was nothing too scandalous, but it made waves across the internet. Graf quickly realized what she had done and zipped back up, but the pictures had already been taken.

Graf told reporters, "I totally forgot. 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," she said, "did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube. But I don't think it will be so bad.
