A Canadian bobsledder went to try on suit and found it more than "a little tight."

In the latest Olympics wardrobe malfunction, Christopher Spring tweeted a picture Saturday that revealed a rip though the center of his suit caused by what he called his "powerbelly." 

"I tried on my race suit ahead of tomorrow's 2man Olympic race and its a little...er tight. #powerbelly," Spring wrote.

The bobsledder, originally from Australia, stumbled upon the sport during a Canadian vacation, according to Yahoo News. He competed for the Aussie team in Vancouver in 2010 then gained Canadian citizenship to sleigh for Team Canada.

Spring isn't alone among Olympians in showing off skin in Sochi.

Russian speed skater Olga Graf nearly bared all by unzipping her skating suit to cool off after clinching her country's first medal.

Swedish slopestyle skier Henrik Harlaut's baggy pants ended up around his ankles while he caught some air in the men’s finals. But that didn't stop him from tightening his trousers for the competition.

"I've skied like that the past 10 years.” He said. “It's been (my style) for awhile. I'm pretty comfortable like that."
