Sometimes, in ice skating, as in other sports, the show must go on. Nobody knows that better so far this year than Ekaterina Rubleva, a Russian figure skater who had a far more revealing performance than was expected of her at the European championships on Monday.


Competing with partner Ivan Shefer in pairs figure skating in Helsinki, Finland, Rubleva's costume started to slip, eventually exposing a full breast (Editor's note: The original photo can be seen here, but is NSFW) to the crowd and judges. But the skaters continued with their routine.

Rubleva and Shefer eventually landed a score of 29.04 to find themselves in 12th place, which is pretty impressive, considering the whole outfit malfunction thing. Though I'm sure it wasn't udder-ly what they were hoping for (sorry, I couldn't resist!)
