Sochi 2014:I Knew They Should Compete Nude!


Yep, those rock-throwing-brush-pushing-slip-sliding-hurry-harding ladies rule when it comes to getting naked for a camera.

In a recent post I mentioned the ancient Greek tradition of Olympic athletes competing naked. Evidently Russian bronze-medalist  Olga Graf agrees with me. Upon completing the 3000 meters, the speed skater, during her cool-down lap unzipped her skin-tight skating suit forgetting she was not wearing anything underneath (at least that’s her story – she did wonder if it would end up on YouTube!). One can only imagine what she would have done had she won gold!

The incident has been referred to as a wardrobe malfunction, but if I was the person who manufactured the suit I’d point out that undoing the zipper doesn’t count as a malfunction!

When it comes to modern Winter Olympians speed skaters are not leading the way in nudity. Nope. That lofty title belongs to none other than female curlers. Yep, those rock-throwing-brush-pushing-slip-sliding-hurry-harding ladies rule when it comes to getting naked for a camera.
