It’s no secret that the Olympic Villages have always been a breeding ground for…well, for breeding. When thousands of world-class, hard bodies get together in tight quarters, boning is bound to happen.

So what’s different about this year’s Winter Olympiad? Tinder. The game-changing hookup app is being used frequently by the athletes in Sochi. US snowboarder Jamie Anderson says the swiping is out of control.

“Tinder!” Anderson said in an interview with Us Weekly when asked what her favorite way to flirt was at the Games. “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.”

She was so obsessed with swiping, she claims she had to delete the app as the games approached. Apparently it worked, considering Anderson took home the gold for the US of A in women’s slopestyle on Sunday.

We live in an amazing world.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
