Bobsledder Johnny Quinn had to break hole in door after getting locked in Sochi Olympics bathroom
Now people are just screwing with us, right? We know there have been a number of problems at the Sochi Olympics so far that include but are not limited to weird toilet paper situations, filthy water and unfinished construction. But athletes aren’t really getting locked in bathrooms and having to bust their way out, right?
Early Saturday morning, US bobsledder Johnny Quinn tweeted that the door to his bathroom got jammed when he was taking a shower. This is what followed:
…With no phone to call for help, I used my bobsled push training to break out. #SochiJailBreak pic.twitter.com/apZRefgvCO

Quinn appeared on “The Today Show” shortly after the incident and joked about it.
“It was an unfortunate situation but I got out safely,” he said. “It could have happened to anyone.”
Unlike others, Quinn actually praised the Russians for the job they have done in setting up the Olympics.
“The nice thing is that the venue here has been phenomenal,” he added. “The Russians have done a great job with the venue. Unfortunately I got locked in this morning.”
Quinn absolutely mangled that thing. He’s lucky the doors weren’t made of heavy duty material or steel, because he would have been waiting there until someone discovered him. I think I speak for everyone when I say I can’t wait to see what else the next two weeks have in store for us.
