Bobsledder stuck: Bobsledder Johnny Quinn busts through door after getting stuck

See also

Team USA Bobsledder Johnny Quinn got stuck inside a hotel bathroom in Sochi and had to bust his way out because he didn't have any other choice. On Feb. 8, Us Weekly reported that Quinn didn't have a phone with him and didn't have any luck calling for help -- so he did whatever he had to do to escape from the bathroom.

"I was taking a shower and the door got locked/jammed. With no phone to call for help, I used my bobsled push training to break out. #SochiJailBreak," Quinn tweeted after the incident. Naturally this was added to the long list of "#SochiProblems" that have been trending on Twitter since the start of the Olympics last week.

The bobsledder was stuck for an unknown amount of time but it's clear that he wasn't taking any chances. He joked about the ordeal on Twitter and is still talking about his experience which seems more funny now that he was able to escape.

Quinn posted a photo of his champion door busting and then posted the photo you see above -- a Photoshopped image of himself standing in the doorway, proving that he totally owned that door! There has been a lot of chatter about things going wrong in Sochi but some say that the conditions aren't that bad. Getting stuck in a bathroom might be pretty bad -- but the door didn't look legit -- lucky for Quinn.

In the bobsledder stuck case? It's Johnny Quinn: 1. Sochi hotel door: 0.
