Athletes at the Winter Games connect on Tinder

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 13, 2014

When they're not striving for gold, Winter Games athletes are trying to find love on Tinder. 

For those of you who aren't hip on the latest dating app, Tinder allows you to connect with app users in your vicinity who you may like. You either like or pass on someone, but two likes, of course, create a match.

Snowboarder Jaime Anderson, 23, confirmed with US Weekly that, "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, however, found the app to be "way too distracting" and deleted her account to focus on the games. On Feb. 9 she won gold for Team USA during the women's slopestyle competition.

So, will there be a Sochi love connection before Valentine's Day?
