Trapped U.S. bobsledder smashes through Sochi bathroom door


WATCH: U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn talks about busting through his bathroom door in Sochi

After being locked in a bathroom inside the athlete’s village, U.S. Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn knew there was just one way to get out.

The former NFL and CFL player did some serious damage and tore apart the door, saying he used his “bobsled push training to break out.” He said he was taking a shower when the door became jammed.

A U.S. team spokeswoman could not say whether Quinn will have to pay for the door.
