Whether it's the Winter Olympics or Summer Olympics, if you're competing, you would love for everything to go off without a hitch.

It sounds like a bad dream.

Figure skater Yura Min will never forget her Olympic debut! When the South Korean skater made her Olympic debut on February 11, a wardrobe malfunction threatened to expose her just seconds into her short routine.

On a brighter note, the company's online sales in New Zealand jumped 90 per cent to $4.8m and are now almost 4pc of total sales. JB Hi-Fi closed one of its New Zealand stores in the six months ended December 31, while opening seven new stores in Australia.

"Five seconds into the routine, my hook came undone", Min said. "I was terrified the entire programme".

"This is my first Olympics, our first program and if my top were to come down, that would have been a disaster" she said. "'If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off.'" Luckily, they managed to finish their performance without any further malfunction taking place.

Gamelin backed his partner up.

They did not find out that the North Koreans were joining them until mid-January, when the rest of the world also heard the news . The 28-year-old is a crucial part of the North's Games delegation led by Kim Yong Nam, North Korea's nominal head of state.

Min, an American citizen who trains at Novi Ice Arena in MI, suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she competed in the team event for South Korea in Pyeongchang on Sunday. However, during their synchronized side-by-side spins known as twizzles, Min took a pause to tug on the dress to prevent it from falling, ultimately avoiding a catastrophic fashion faux pas at the 2018 Winter Games.

However, Min handled it with grace, knowing stopping to fix it would only cost her and her partner, Alexander Gamelin.

Min and Gamelin will also compete together again at the individual pairs competition. "It wasn't because we were skating poorly". As Min was expertly doing her routine, the top of her dress decided that it would be the flawless time to disconnect in the back.
