The #SochiProblems are escalating, people.
After U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn realized he was trapped inside his hotel bathroom this weekend, the 30-year-old Olympian broke down the door. Quinn, who was phoneless post-shower, pummeled through the pseudo-wood to escape that small, steamy space — and tweeted the aftermath to the world:
I was taking a shower and the door got locked/jammed....— Johnny Quinn (@JohnnyQuinnUSA) February 8, 2014
Naturally, Quinn — formerly a wide receiver on the Green Bay Packers practice squad — received feedback from fellow athletes:
@JohnnyQuinnUSA seriously Johnny who goes to the bathroom with out a cell phone? Its 2014 brother.— John Daly (@JohnDalyUSA) February 8, 2014
Quinn’s no stranger to bold moves. The dude just happens to suffer from motion sickness and chooses to climb in something that shoots up to 118 mph.
“I've got to ride with my eyes closed,” he told the Patriot-News. “I always tell people that the ride is the same as the biggest and baddest roller coaster at Six Flags. The difference is our roller coaster can break.”
Or, is THIS what really happened?

The 220-pound bobsledder isn’t the first Sochi visitor to battle hotel doors. A plethora of journalists have been locked in — and out — of their rooms.
First bit of adversity here at #Sochi2014. Locked INSIDE my room on Thursday morning. Waiting for the cavalry to arrive.— Steve McAllister (@yahoomac) February 6, 2014
But this gets the cake: my door wont close. No one has come to fix. Do I go to sleep with room open? pic.twitter.com/J0xZhUzqiz— Mike Wise (@MikeWiseguy) February 5, 2014
