Johnny Quinn, a U.S. Olympic bobsledder, was forced to kick his way through a door when he found himself locked within his Sochi hotel room bathroom.
Johnny Quinn Kicks Through Stuck Bathroom Door
Quinn’s Sochi hotel mishap is just the latest in a string of stories underscoring the unfinished accommodations in the Russian Olympic host city. Without his cell phone handy to call for assistance, the former North Texas football player put his leg muscles to use to get out. He shared a photo of the door post-break out on Twitter.
In the picture, not only is it clear that Quinn did in fact smash his foot through the door a few times, but also that the door was made out of rather flimsy corrugated cardboard.

Among those who commented on Quinn’s bathroom incident was Star Trek star William Shatner. “You've certainly made your mark,” said the Captain Kirk actor. “As I told Mr Cunningham, take a piece of the door to tell your kids. 😉 Bill.”

As luck would have it, two days after the locked door, Quinn faced a stuck elevator with fellow members of Team USA David Cripps and Nick Cunningham. Both Cripps and Cunningham uploaded photos of the latest Sochi fail to befall Quinn.
