I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you’re looking for a freak fest, look no further than the Olympic Village. If you take a group of athletes at their physical peak and toss them in the most stressful situations of their entire lives, you’re going to be left with a bunch of people trying to blow off some steam. I’m under the impression that the Winter Olympics would be better for hooking up (because fireplaces) than the Summer Olympics (because Zika), but both are going to lead to an increased amount of casual encounters.
As we all know, if you’re single, you have two options: download every dating app in the game or die alone. And just because these people are Olympic athletes, that doesn’t mean they’re too good for Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, or whatever. In fact, there’s an Instagram account that’s solely dedicated to outing which athletes are actually on Tinder and Bumble. Here are some of the best profiles they’ve come across.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the Olympians trying to get theirs. The two accounts (which are run by the same person) are logging anyone and everyone they can find, presumably by using the Tinder Plus function where you can remotely put yourself in another part of the world and swipe on whoever you want.
Look out, 2036 Olympics. Might be some straight-up athletes whose parents made it official at Rio. .
