Russian speedskater Olga Graf wasn't expected to win a medal Sunday. She also wasn't expected to show as much skin as she did after the race.

Graf finished her event in 4 minutes and 3.47 seconds, giving her the bronze medal. It was also the first medal the Russians won at Sochi, making it a major victory for the country, as they weren't expected to grab one in the 3,000-meter race.

After winning the race, Graf unzipped her skin suit so she could breathe, but after realizing what she had done, she quickly re-zipped her suit back up. According to Paul Newberry of The Associated Press (via SFGate.com), this is what she had to say about the incident:

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 did I realize that maybe this video will appear on YouTube. But I don't think it will be so bad.

The situation could have been worse, so we'll give Graf a pass as she was able to win her country's first medal of the Olympic games.
