Give British bobsledder Gillian Cooke credit for being able to stay focused in the most embarrassing of situations.

As this video shows, the pants of her competition suit split just as she and teammate Nicola Minichielle were pushing off for a run at the world championships in Switzerland.

The two still finished seventh and are expected to be in the medal hunt at next month's Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Cooke hasn't made any comment about the wardrobe malfunction, but the video pretty much says it all.
