US bobsledder becomes 'bobshredder' after getting locked in bathroom
How weak was that bathroom door? How strong is U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn?
These were two questions I grappled with as I learned that one of our athletes somehow got locked/stuck in a bathroom at the Sochi Olympic village, according to The Huffington Post.
"I was taking a shower, and the door got locked/jammed," tweeted Quinn, 30, on Friday.
Quinn, who also played in the NFL and the CFL, relied on his bobsled training to help him break free.
With all the infrastructure failures apparently happening at the Sochi Games, it's no surprise Quinn's tweet went viral, and the responses have been wonderful, including from Quinn himself.
