SOCHI SCENE: No, Johnny, no!

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — First a bathroom. Now an elevator.

 

U.S. Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn keeps getting stuck.

Quinn, who famously busted his way out of a locked bathroom at the athlete’s village earlier at the Sochi Games, has apparently gotten himself into another jam, this time in an elevator.

Quinn posted a photo on his Twitter account showing him, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and U.S. A. baseball cap, trying to pry open the elevator doors. He wrote, “No one is going to believe this but we just got stuck in an elevator.”

A team spokesperson verified that Quinn did indeed get caught stuck in an elevator before dinner, but got out without having to destroy anything.

He’s looking for better luck getting in and out of USA-3 next week when he competes in the four-game competition.
