Canadian figure skater Meagan Duhamel found herself in a bit of a sticky situation before her scheduled competition on Wednesday.
In the hours leading up to her mixed pairs short program event, Duhamel tweeted that she dropped her phone into a toilet … that was unflushed.
I'm heading to the rink to compete at the #olympics and I just dropped my phone into a non-flushed toilet bowl. That's right. No better way to humble me before the biggest skate of my life. #oopsie #phonefail— Meagan Duhamel (@mhjd_85) February 14, 2018
The bad luck did not end there for the 32-year-old Duhamel though. Within 30 minutes of her first tweet, she revealed that she had a wardrobe mishap of sorts as well and almost boarded the wrong bus to the Olympic venue.
Update: the hanger carrying my dress broke from the wind. And I was stepping into the wrong bus but Bruno Massot saved me from going to the wrong venue. Haha! Ok! Im ready to nail this short! 👊— Meagan Duhamel (@mhjd_85) February 14, 2018
Rest assured though, Duhamel is a seasoned professional. She won two world championships in 2015 and 2016 with partner Eric Radford and already took home the gold with Radford on Monday as part of the mixed team event. So come Wednesday’s competition (following Duhamel’s streak of lousy luck), the pair finished with a strong 76.82 score, putting them in third place and in position for another medal heading into the long program later this week.
