Poor Johnny Quinn. The American bobsledder came to Sochi to bobsled. Instead he's taking gold in the new sport of Getting Stuck in Small Sochi Spaces.

Last night, it was the elevator. 

Turns out, this weekend, British bobsledder Rebekah Wilson was almost killed by one. When the elevator doors opened, she started stepping in when she noticed there was no elevator there. She had almost stepped into an empty elevator shaft.
