Bobsledder Returns

TEXAS- Olympic bobsledder and legendary door-smasher Johnny Quinn has returned from Sochi and is back home in North Texas.

Quinn arrived Wednesday night at Dallas' Love Field Airport.

The Olympian was greeted with applause, he even had a request for his autograph.

Quinn did not medal after participating in the four-man bobsled but instead became well known for tweeting out a picture after getting stuck and then bursting through his bathroom door.

Johnny Quinn said, "you know, it was a tweet heard around the world and something that I didn't think would explode the way it did but fortunately now that everyone is safe and the door has been fixed, it's something we can joke about now, so you better believe my teammates were giving me a hard time about it."

Quinn says with the Olympics now behind him, he'll be getting married in May.
