US Swimmer and Beijing relay gold medalist Ricky Berens tore the back of his swimsuit in a qualifying heat of the 4x100m relay freestyle on Sunday during the World Swimming Championships in Rome.

I felt like I was putting on a pretty good show.”

As soon as he got out of the pool, Berens quickly wrapped up in a towel. In the end, tear or no tear Berens didn’t let the wardrobe malfunction stop him and he and the US team went on to qualify and win. The Huffington Post has the best pictures, capturing every angle of his dive into the pool.

  1. All the foofaraw about Ricky Beren’s exposed butt just shows how silly we are with our Puritanical fear of nudity. In the original Greek Olympics all contestants competed nude in all events and there was no problem about unfair advantages over what was worn by contestants.
