American bobsledder Johnny Quinn learned the hard way that in Soviet Russia, bathroom stalls you.
The Olympian found himself locked inside a bathroom in Russia’s Olympic Village in Sochi after taking a shower. Luckily, Quinn had two things on his side: the poor quality of Russian construction and his bobsledding skills. So the 6-foot, 220-pound former football player pulled a “Kool-Aid man” and smashed through the 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,” Quinn tweeted, along with a photo of the (cardboard) door in ruins.
Quinn has since posted another photo of the smashed door with a Photoshopped image of himself in the hole looking super tough while wearing bobsleddin’ gear. Heeeere’s Johnny!!!
Athletes and journalists in Sochi have been complaining that their accommodations are in rough shape, taking to Twitter to vent their grumbles. But are the shoddy accommodations a result of cutting corners and a lack of preparation or was this Putin’s plan to win all along? Maybe the Russians activated the door lock to keep Quinn from competing, paving the way for RUSSIAN VICTORY! Little did they know that their inferior cardboard doors are no match for 220 pounds of American muscle.
