NBC has experienced problems trying to run the Olympics on tape delay, and now we’re seeing that they’re encountering problems running things live.
At one point during the Spain-US women’s water polo match on Tuesday, a Spanish player’s swimsuit was pulled, leaving her breast exposed. The shot was noticed by many viewers and began circulating online (NSFW version at Deadspin).
An NBC commentator says it was Kami Craig who grabbed the suit and exposed the breast. She had four goals in the 9-9 tie.
This sort of wardrobe malfunction is nothing new in water polo. The play is so rough that participants will often do anything and grab anything to gain better position while struggling in the water. Sometimes private parts end up exposed. It’s just too bad the Spanish player didn’t have her other arm free so that she could pull a Venus Williams.
