Olympic Athletes Using Tinder To Hook Up At Sochi
U.S. Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, who took the gold in the women’s slopestyle event, has revealed that hook-up app Tinder is all the rage in the Olympic Village at Sochi 2014.
Tinder Used By Athletes At Winter Olympics
There’s been ample talk about the sex lives of Olympic athletes during the games, especially since the exposé in ESPN came out in which swimmer Ryan Lochte guessed that 70-75% of the athletes seal the deal during the Games. This time around, in addition to checking each other out at the Olympic Village cafeteria, there’s hook up app Tinder.
"Tinder! Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level,” Anderson told Us Weekly. “It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there."
Although Anderson liked what she saw on the dating app, she claims that it threatened to be a distraction as she prepared to compete. "There was a point where I had to be like ok, this is way too distracting," she admitted. "I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics."
On Sunday, Anderson proved she didn’t let the distractions get the best of her, capturing gold in the women’s slopestyle in the first year the event was a part of the Olympics with a score of 95.25. Finland’s Enni Rukajarvi came in second in the event, while Great Britain’s Jenny Jones took the bronze medal.
