U.S. Bobsledder Busts Through a Door to Escape His Sochi Bathroom

Team USA bobsledder Johnny Quinn got trapped in his Sochi bathroom while taking a shower when his door jammed and wouldn't open. Luckily, the former NFL football player turned slider had more than enough muscle to breach what looks like a rather flimsy door.

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

Whether this is a simple door malfunction that could've happened anywhere, or a sign of slipshod work in the rush to finish Sochi's Olympic facilities, is impossible to tell. Though if Johnny was in a room with shower surveillance, maybe he wouldn't have had to resort to such brute force. [Twitter]

Update: Apparently Johnny wasn't the only one who got trapped. Reader inc123 pointed us to an account of a Swiss journalist who also got locked in a Sochi hotel bathroom.
