Are These The Tinder Profiles Of The Athletes Competing At The 2014 Sochi Olympic Games?

15 February 2014 by

Erm.. so why wasn't Tinder invented in time for the London Olympics? A blog is unveiling what appears to be the profiles of all the Sochi Olympic athletes on Tinder and they're ALL unbelievably gorgeous in their profiles. (100% swipe rights.) From topless hunky guys to girls showing off their 'ski' bums and loads of people flaunting their athletic abilty - we're totally jealous of the Russian locals right now. 

The just-released screen grabs don't just give us a extra chance to gawp at these superhumans. They also give us an insight into their lives. For example Canadian athlete Natalie, 23 writes life mantra 'Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it' as her bio. Meanwhile loads of the athletes express a passion for travel, adrenaline-fueled activites and sport (no surprise).

U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson recently described Tinder use in the Sochi Olympic Village as pretty extreme. 'Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level,' she told US Weekly. 'It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there.' 

The 23-year-old revealed she had to delete her profile after a while though because it was getting too distracting. 'There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting,' she said. 'I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics.'

Justin Mateen, the founder of Tinder, agrees with Jamie that athletes need to avoid getting distracted by the dating app. 'Tinder is a great way to meet new people when you're traveling and want to get the most out of your experience in a new city,' he told TMZ. 'But for now, focus on giving it your all while competing. Tinder will always be here when you're done.'
