U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson dished about the dating scene in Sochi this week, saying that athletes' use of the popular app Tinder is "next level."

The 23-year-old, who won gold Sunday in the women's slopestyle event, said Tinder, which helps daters find matches based on location, is overrun with Olympic athletes.

"Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level," Anderson told Us Weekly
. "It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there . . . There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting. I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics."

Tinder, which hit the Apple app store in October, shows users a few images of singles in their area and asks them to hit "like" or say "nope" to their potential matches. Only those with mutual "likes" are allowed to message each other.

Anderson isn’t the only Olympian who admitted to using Tinder to look for potential matches. New Zealand snowboard Rebecca Torr wasn’t shy about her intentions going into Sochi.


As for Anderson, she said she's excited to go home and celebrate her gold medal.

"I can't wait to go out with all my girlfriends and dance," the Lake Tahoe, Calif., native said. "There is nowhere to go out here! It's been too long. I'm excited to just go home and let everything sink in. It's been such a busy roller coaster. It's been one of the craziest seasons of my life . . . I am so thankful and fortunate that I got through it."
