Jamie Anderson, you just won Olympic Gold! What’s next for you? Though the 23 year old American says she is keen to get home and dance with her friends, other Olympians looking to unwind have a more immediate outlet — Tinder, the hookup app preferred by American college students, is also the go to social media tool for Olympic hookups.

For Anderson, “too long” apparently means waiting a bit longer, until she gets back to her South Lake Tahoe, California home. However, at least some of her fellow Olympians aren’t as disciplined and will be playing the field with Tinder in Sochi…
