And one user of both Instagram and Tinder has decided to show a different side to the Olympic games, revealing the athletes who are swiping on Tinder while at the games.
Whoever is behind the idea goes by the name of Sportsswipe on Instagram, and posts screenshots of the dating profiles of both male and female athletes.
And so far, Sportsswipe has found around 500 athletes on the dating app by using Tinder Passport, which lets Tinder Plus users search for singles in any area worldwide, regardless of their current location.
The athletes on the dating app include Louis Smith, Team GB medal winning gymnast and Strictly Come Dancing winner, and US swimmer and winner of five Olympic gold medals, Ryan Lochte.
Sportsswipe’s interest started during the Tour De France, but it wasn’t until the 2015 Beijing World Championships that he/she started posting the profiles on the Instagram account.
The account also posts the profiles of athletes who are using fellow dating app Bumble.
