These Tweets Prove that Russia is Completely Unprepared for the Winter Olympics

Journalists have arrived and are starting to cover the Sochi 2014 winter Olympics. After early reports doubting the city's preparedness for the big game(s) and human rights protests across Russia, press at Sochi are naturally a bit concerned. As these tweets gathered by the Washington Post show, they had every right.

Russia's unpreparedness for the Sochi Olympics has been widely publicized, but now it seems like their shoddy construction runs right down the bathroom doors in the Olympic village.

American bobsledder Johnny Quinn got trapped in one of the bathrooms because the door jammed. Thankfully, Quinn's bobsled training involved a lot of... ahem... forceful thrusting. Rather than face a slow, agonizing death in a Sochi dook hut, Quinn used himself as a battering ram to break through the door to freedom.

After all, he's an American! He knows all about freedom!
