GJ, Sochi utilities committee, GJ...

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!

The Olympics are hard enough.

You've got the best athletes in the entire world up against you, and you need to be at the absolute top of your game to succeed.

The last thing you need is the Olympic village itself trying to defeat you too.

That would seem to be the case for poor Johnny Quinn, who had to ram his way out of a bathroom that had a jammed door just a few days ago. Earlier this morning, Quinn found himself trapped again, this time in an elevator in his hotel.

Johnny Quinn: breaking barriers all over the place! Now if only the Russian government would follow his example...

When watching the Olympics, it's best not to think about your athleticism, your body, or really the fact that you exist as a person at all.
