Jamie Anderson, the 23-year-old American snowboarder, tells US Weekly that she and her fellow female athletes spend their down time in Sochi on one app in particular:
"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."
Every Olympics seems to set new records in lasciviousness. The stress of competition coupled with the location-awareness of hard bodies at their physical peak—who wouldn't swipe right? But it's not all fun at the games:
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.
Good thing they discontinued Flappy Bird.
