And to add insult to injury, the incident was replayed in slow motion on screens at the arena.

Papadakis, 22, had just begun her routine when a lift by her partner Guillaume Cizeron undid her dress, exposing her left breast.

Skaters Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron attracted major attention recently, after Papadakis' costume became unfastened and she had a nip-slip during the routine. It was pretty distracting, kind of my worst nightmare. "My worst nightmare at the Olympics".

Turkey Denies Use of Chemicals in Syria's Afrin
On Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights released a report accusing Turkish forces of a chemical weapon attack in Afrin. The PKK has waged a decades-long armed fight against the Turkish state that killed tens of thousands of people.

"It is just frustrating to miss a few points because of a costume issue", Cizeron said.

"It was hard to stay concentrated after the wardrobe malfunction we suffered", Cizeron tweeted, though they still managed to finish their programme less than two points behind leaders Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada. I have to keep going.' And that's what we did.

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.

Mueller reportedly crossing Trump 'red line,' investigating Kushner's business dealings
Mueller's team has yet to reach out to Kushner Companies' executives for interviews, according to CNN . Kushner has said that the December 2016 meeting was held to discuss official government business.

"We've got to keep the sport modern and new, and that's what is exciting about figure skating as well and ice dancing particularly". But rather than allow the accident to shatter her Olympic dreams, the athlete powered through her short program, and the duo came in second place with 81.93 points.

"I don't know any other girl who would have finished the performance the way she did, even with the top completely undone", their coach Marie-France Dubreuil said. We just delivered an unbelievable performance at the Olympics.

"We have edited the video for all television encores and online replays", the statement read. Papadakis and Cizeron have also won several gold medals in the Gran Prix series, and are two-time world champions (2015-2016) and four-time European champions (2015-2018). But I applaud her for pushing through and never giving up till the end!'

Today is Presidents' Day: What's open, what's closed
Most consumer banks are closed for President's Day, too, though a few are still open including some branches of TD Bank . All of the Monday holidays fall on the Monday nearest the actual date, except one: Washington's Birthday.

But rather than allow the malfunction to wreck their Olympic dreams, Papadakis valiantly continued the performance - and was rewarded for her bravery with second place heading into Tuesday's free dance.
