Safe to say Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev is having a better week than most Olympians.

While American bobsledder Johnny Quinn struggled to get out of a locked bathroom and Great Britain's Rebekah Wilson nearly fell down an open elevator shaft, Sobolev spent time rebooting his phone after it broke thanks to an influx of calls and naked photos.

The 22-year-old Russian decided to write his phone number on his helmet during a qualifying event on Thursday. Hours later, his phone overloaded with missed calls and picture messages and just stopped working.

Sobolev was eventually able to get things back in working order and plans to get to know some of the ladies who gave him a buzz.

"I'm definitely going to call them," Sobolev said.
