U.S. Olympian frees himself after being trapped in bathroom

Posted: Updated:

An American bobsledder and North Texas native had to use his training to get himself out of a tight spot while at the Olympics.

Johnny Quinn was taking a shower in Sochi, Russia on Saturday when the bathroom door closed and either locked or jammed. He couldn't get it open.

Since he didn't have a phone, Quinn pushed his way through the door and took to Twitter afterwards.

A former teammate on the track team at the University of North Texas was among those surprised to see the picture. 

"He's always been a good guy," said Chastidy Russell. "This was kind of a surprise. He was one of those people who could get himself out of any situation."
