SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Canadian bobsledder Heather Moyse had to take an Epsom salt bath in an extra large trashcan Sunday and tweeted a picture of it.

Moyse found herself in a pickle when she needed to take an Epsom salt bath to soothe her muscles and encountered another Sochi problem -- there are no bathtubs in Sochi.

In a moment of creative inspiration, Moyse found an extra large trash can and soaked in that. She then tweeted a picture of it for all of her followers to see.

Moyse underwent surgery on her hips in 2012 so the bath is probably a welcome relief. She and her partner, Kallie Humpries, placed second in the women's bobsled Tuesday.
