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.

I was seriously born in the wrong decade....if i were to write my phone number on my helmet i would just get knowing glances and offers to call my grand children to come pick me up....

Did he write his phone number on his helmet for any particular reason?

Of course, to get to know some of the local girls who are desperate to give it up so they can claim they got f**ked by an Olympian this year
