Russian speed skater Olga Graf showed off more than she wanted after a bronze medal-winning performance in the Olympic Games 3,000 metres, ripping down the zip of her skin suit in delight.

Graf, who won Russia's first medal of the Sochi Games, raised her arms aloft in triumph after crossing the finishing line and then pulled her zip down to her waist.

The tight skin suit burst open to reveal she had no underwear. Graf put her hand to her mouth in embarrassment and rapidly zipped back up, but keeping her smile.

"Yes it is true. There was nothing underneath," she was quoted as saying by the Sovietsky Sport daily.

"We have great suits, they make the body feel light and as a result I wear nothing under them. When I finished the race I forgot about this."

"And I thought, what a nightmare! And soon it will be all over YouTube. But in fact, nothing bad will come of it."

"In the end, I did not show that much," she mused.
