The occurrence of lightning striking twice in the same place is a rare event. And so does being stuck in a tiny room because of a jammed door lock in the same Olympic.

But it did happen to American bobsledder Johnny Quinn who was in the news last week for using his bobsledding training to destroy the door of his hotel bathroom that refused to open. Quinn said he had no recourse except to use brute force since his mobile phone was in the other room.

The news and video of the destroyed door became viral in the internet.

On Monday, Quinn once more tweeted a second incident involving another Sochi door - this time it was not a bathroom door but an elevator door. He was trapped in the lift with fellow American athletes David Cripps and Nick Cunningham.  Click here to see the photo of Quinn trapped inside an elevator.

However, while Quinn did not indicate in his later tweet how he managed to get out, he obviously didn't use his training to bust open the elevator door made of a heavier material than bathroom doors that are usually made of wood.
