Sports CorrespondentIn case you were busy Sunday night watching The Walking Dead or the Beatles Tribute, here’s the recap on what you missed on the first two official days of the Winter Games. Sochi was home to an action-packed weekend that saw Russia snag its first gold of the Games, the US capture two gold medals of its own, and an American bobsledder make headlines off the ice. In what has been a continuing theme from Sochi, the hotel amenities have lacked a little something according to various media accounts. Add American bobsledder Johnny Quinn to the list of Sochi visitors disappointed in the conditions there. After finishing in the shower, he found he was locked inside his bathroom. Quinn resorted to what any other bobsledder under distress would do: rely on his training, and bust that door down! According to Quinn’s Twitter account, he used his “bobsled push training” to set himself free. Judging by the picture below, that door may not have needed the strength of an Olympian to destroy that.
- Bode Miller finished 8th in the Alpine downhill on Sunday. He was bidding to join Apollo Anton Ono as one of the most decorated winter Olympians ever, but will have to wait for his other events to achieve history.
