And they could feel the gravity of this historic moment.
“I’m loving this whole theme of peace,” Gamelin said.
They were able to spend some time with the North Korean pairs team.
“We have seen them at a lot of competitions,” Min said. “The fact that we were able to see each other. Hug. And take pictures, as one country, was absolutely amazing.”
In retrospect, Min and Gamelin are glad the costume malfunction happened in the team event.
They now can turn their focus to the individual pairs competition, which begins Feb.18.
“If this was our only shot, I’d be devastated,” Min said.
As far as that individual competition, Min plans to wear the same costume.
But they won’t take any chances.
They won’t just fix the hook.
They plan to sew that costume together.
