NBC Shows Breast In Live Coverage Of Spain-USA Waterpolo Game At Olympics

NBC might have another reason to rely on tape delay for its coverage of 2012 London Olympics.

On Wednesday, the network aired live coverage of the U.S. women's waterpolo match against Spain. As the sports announcers covering the game commented that there was "a lot of suit-grabbing going on under water," a replay of U.S. player Kami Craig grabbing her opponent's suit filled the screen.

One of the women's bare breasts was briefly exposed during the replay. Deadspin was first to notice the possible wardrobe malfunction.

While NBC plans to air an unprecedented amount of Olympics footage for the 2012 London games, the network has been the subject of harsh criticism for delaying the broadcast of major events till prime time hours. The network was also criticized for editing choices as well.

Take a look at the footage below via Mediaite.
