Tinder Co-founder tells Olympians to concentrate on winning, not finding a date

By Ginny Spellman ,

It seems that Team USA is focused on more than going for the gold in the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Many Olympic athletes, especially from the USA, have been attempting to use the dating app Tinder to find love in Olympic Village. However, the app’s co-founder, Justin Mateen, told TMZ that the athletes should keep it in their pants until after the games.

"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, but for now, focus on giving it your all while competing," Mateen said. "Tinder will always be here when you're done."

Earlier this week, the gold medalist snowboarder, Jamie Anderson, told US Weekly that the Olympic Village takes Tinder to a whole new level of dating.

“Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level,” Anderson said. “It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there."

Hopefully the possibility of a hook up doesn’t distract Team USA from doing what they set out to do in Sochi.
