DENTON, Texas (AP) — A U.S. bobsledder who gained fame during the Winter Olympics in Sochi (SOH'-chee) for busting through a stuck bathroom door has learned the proper way to breach a barrier.

Johnny Quinn on Wednesday joined Denton Police Department tactical officers for training on getting through locked doors.

Quinn, who attended the University of North Texas in Denton, used a law enforcement battering ram to break through a door set up for the exercise. Officer Ronny Crain said the key is to hit as close to the knob as possible.

Quinn, who also received lessons on firing an assault rifle and a handgun, says he was humbled to be able to train with police officers.
