Knife-Wielding Man Injures Four Church-Goers in Indonesia
People fled through another door as the attacker ran amok inside the church. "Everybody started panicking and screaming". A man with a sword allegedly slashed at church-goers as they prayed in Indonesia, injuring five people, CNN reported.
"It's very hard to stay concentrated when you're anxious about whether your costume is going to stay on", she said. "That wouldn't be the most ideal Olympic experience, obviously". However, during their synchronized side-by-side spins known as twizzles, Min took a pause to tug on the dress to prevent it from falling, ultimately avoiding a catastrophic fashion faux pas at the 2018 Winter Games. "If that comes undone, the whole [outfit] could just pop off".
"I didn't stop", Min said.
"In my head, I was thinking, 'Is it better to stop and fix it and get the deduction or keep going?'" Luckily, she was spared the biggest wardrobe fail this side of Janet Jackson's Super Bowl halftime show. "It wasn't because we were skating poorly".

Gamelin is from Boston, while Min was born in California to Korean parents.
Although a hook on the back of her dress pulled loose, the figure skater, representing South Korea, managed to carry on with her routine as she performed a series of improvisations, such as pulling her arms back on occasion, while dancing with partner Alexander Gamelin. They might not have grown up in the Olympic host nation, but it didn't stop the crowd from taking them to heart. "Even with my costume coming undone, the fans helped us, picked us up".
Min and Gamelin are both American citizens and train in MI.
