Female Olympians Say Tinder Use in the Olympics Village Is ‘Next Level’
23-year-old Olympic snowboarding goddess Jamie Anderson talked to US Weekly about the Tinder game in Sochi’s Olympic Village. Just like in London at the Summer Games, it’s sexy time explosions left and right for athletes at the Winter Games:
“Tinder!” Anderson told Us with a laugh about the dating app. “Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It’s all athletes! In the mountain village it’s all athletes. It’s hilarious. There are some cuties on there.”
Anderson eventually had to remind herself, however, to focus on the real prize and put her love life on hold. “There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting,” she said of using Tinder. “I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics.”
Turning off Tinder ended up working in Anderson’s favor — at least in her career. She won the gold medal in Women’s Slopestyle Event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi on Sunday, Feb. 9.
Olympians… They’re 100% just like you.
