I swear once upon a time things used to be kept in secret, but now with the age of Social Media that’s impossible! It appears some athletes are turning to dating apps to get down to business in Rio de Janeiro.
An Instagram account has uncovered which competitors have been swiping left and right at the Olympic Village. The account @SportsSwipe posts photos of the athletes’ Tinder and Bumble accounts that are active at the 2016 games.
According to The NY Post:
Among the Team USA athletes looking for companionship are swimmers Simone Manuel and Ryan Lochte, and golfer Rickie Fowler, according to the account. Lochte’s profile is the only one of the bunch to have been verified by Tinder.
“Love sports, play one myself,” the 32-year-old gold medalist’s bio said. “Laughter is the quickest way to my heart.”

The International Olympic Committee anticipated the 2016 Summer Games to host the most sexually active athletes yet. Rio broke the record for most condoms supplied with 450,000 ordered in preparation.
