Athletes Use Tinder to Navigate the Sochi Olympic Village

The Today Show Gallery of Olympians

Swimmer Ryan Lochte once estimated that 70-75% of athletes at the Olympics had sex in the Olympic village. And now, according to U.S. Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson, they're using hook-up apps to make the whole process that much more efficient:

"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."

Unfortunately, in this regard too, the gay athletes are treated as unequal, as Tinder's gay equivalent and predecessor, Grindr, has been shut down in Sochi by hackers.
