SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- In another example of the “Sochi Problems” plaguing the Winter Olympics, U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn had to get a little creative when the bathroom door lock jammed while he was taking a shower over the weekend.

It’s no wonder Quinn was able to take out the door. The former University of North Texas football player was with two NFL teams prior to playing for Saskatchewan of the Canadian Football League in 2009.

Six hours after Quinn tweeted the photo, it had already been re-tweeted more than 11,000 times.

It’s unknown how much a replacement door might cost.

Hopefully Quinn gets as much notoriety for what he does on the bobsled course as he has received for what he did in his Sochi hotel room.
