US bobsledder Johnny Quin was just RESCUED from an evil Russian elevator ... just days after being trapped in a Russian bathroom ... and he just called in to TMZ Sports to tell us about his escape.

Quin was leaving the team hotel with the team bobsled pilot and a few team mechanics when the doors suddenly slammed shut ... and wouldn't open.

Quin says he tried to pry the elevator open ... but it wouldn't budge.

Fortunately, the guys had their cell phones and called for help ... and eventually got out.

The incident comes just two days after Johnny got trapped in his own bathroom ... and when no one came to his rescue, he used his bobsled skills to smash through the door like the Kool Aid man.

NBC is doing all they can to brainwash people not to think Russia is a third world country, but it's true, Russia outside of Moscow is a third world country, kind of like what Obama is doing to this country.

If they are locking you in the bathroom to get the advantage, why would you trust the elevator?
