SOCHI, RUSSIA (KLTV) - U.S. Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn had to use his bobsled push training a little earlier than anticipated Saturday.

The 30-year-old McKinney, Texas high school graduate tweeted out a picture of a broken door, which he had to break through after he accidentally locked or jammed the door.

Quinn also said in his tweet, that he didn't have a phone so he had no way of contacting anyone on the outside.

Johnny Quinn is listed as a "push athlete" on the bobsled team and is also a former CFL wide receiver. He is scheduled to compete in the four-man heat at 10:30 a.m. central time on Saturday February 22nd.
