No one wants an unexpected wardrobe malfunction on national television

We all love to indulge ourselves in watching the Olympics, however, what we don’t expect to see is some unexpected wardrobe malfunctions along the way. Here are some of the most awkward accidents of the past Olympics.

Whilst we’re used to seeing such events as this take place, one thing we aren’t accustomed to seeing is any wardrobe malfunctions due to the strict rules that the athlete’s have to follow.Unfortunately, throughout history there have been some people who haven’t been able to prevent an unexpected accident or two during their sport.

There has already been on mishap at this year's olympics as Hugarian Swimmer Kristof Milak lost out in setting a new world record due to a rip in his swimming shorts. Luckily for him the rip was along the hem of his shorts and not in another area.

Speaking to the BBC he explained: "They split 10 minutes before I entered the pool and in that moment I knew the world record was gone. I lost my focus and knew I couldn't do it."Just like Kristof there have been many that have been in his position.

Gabriella Papadakis During the 2018 Winter Olympics, French figure skater Gabriella Papadakis was doing her routine with her partner when all of a sudden her costume came undone.Without giving it a second thought, Gabriella continued to perform, making sure that this wouldn’t get the better of her.

Alex and Maia Shibutani There seems to be a pattern forming the 2014 Winter Olympics there was once again another wardrobe malfunction for two figure skaters, damn those sequins.Siblings, Alex and Maia Shibutani were once again performing their well-practised routine until their costumes physically attached them to one another and ended up tearing Maia’s tights.

Henrik Harlaut So by now we already get the impression that the Winter Olympics is the place for malfunctions and accidents to steal the limelight for athletes.During the 2014 games, Henrik Harlaut was taking part in the qualifying rounds for the men's freestyle skiing slopestyle when all of a sudden his trousers decided to take a break and end up around his ankles – luckily he was wearing nice underwear for the world to see.

American rowing team Now this could be deemed as one of the most risqué kits of all time that went viral.American rowing team stepped up to receive their bronze medals at the 2012 Olympic games only to find that his shorts left very little to the imagination.

Gillian was a professional and laughed it off as she told The Sun:“It’s a good way to break the ice, especially with new team-mates — it always gets a laugh.”Tom Daley Finishing off with our very own Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medalist Tom Daley who lost his trunks as he took a dive into the water whilst competing.

In a YouTube video, Daley said how “by the time I hit the water, my trunks were literally around my ankles and of course it’s live on the big screen. So my bum comes up on the screen and I was absolutely mortified.” – It’s ok Tom, we forgive you.So as the Olympics continue to take place in Tokyo, we wonder if we’ll see any more awkward accidents along the way.
