In the Olympic village, Tinder is 'next level'

Tinder: Making Matches Among The Best Athletes On Earth In Sochi


Sochi 2014 is in full swing, but there's one Olympic event you won't catch during the TV coverage: The 'Tinder Hookup.'

Tinder is the dating app that allows users to swipe the profiles of people near them. If two people swipe each other, a match is made. And, apparently, there have been a lot of athletes teaming up in Sochi.

'Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level,' 23-year-old US snowboarder Jamie 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.'

Fellow snowboarder, New Zealander Rebecca Torr, joked that she wanted to meet the Jamaican bobsled team on the app. 'My Tinder Tweet made the Olympic Village Daily. Hopefully it brings me more matches and closer to the Jamaicans!' she joked.

HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski reported from Sochi admits that she's swiped a few athletes during the Games.

Wasn't anyone warned ahead of time about possible invasion of privacy? like secret cameras and recording devices. I wouldn't be surprised after the Olympics we start to hear about sex videos being leaked. Sochi Shocker "New Zealander snowboarder" does a train with the Jamaican team. Johnny Weir trapped in elevator with six Siberian bobsledders who are looking for the pivot boy.

The best athletes? Olympics is mostly amateur sports that people only watch every 4 years! At least they are skeezing because it is probably pretty boring up there, haha.

More proof that the olympics are a total farce. Know you know how STDs are spread around the world.

It is pretty cool that an app can help people hook up. This new app just came out "Couple Counseling & Chatting", it might help couples stay together...

One big sex fest is what we hear. They compete on the slopes then compete in the sheets. We not only send out donations in to help the athletes train and become able to travel to these events but we are also supporting their sexual exploits. Great.

I will never support the Olympics ever again. It has turned into an orgy for the athletes. They play in their events and then hit the sack with anyone who wants to hook up. This is not the first Olympics where this has been reported. If mommy and daddy want to pay for their children to go to an orgy of this magnitude then they can foot the bill. never a dime from me ever again.

How much "support," financially, have you given the U.S. Olympics in the past? I'll bet it's been substantial, very substantial! Right?
