The IOC might want to consider turning Tinder-swiping into an Olympic event.
It’s common knowledge these days that a lot of sex goes down in the Olympic Village, which means Tinder likely was popular among athletes at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. But which sport had the most desirable athletes on the dating app?
Tinder revealed this information after the Olympics wrapped up last week, and you might be surprised by the data, which was gathered based on the number of right swipes (indicating you like the person) for people whose sports were listed in their bios.
Behold, the most-swiped athletes during the Rio Olympics, by sport. The data below comes from Tinder, via Mashable.
1. Table tennis
2. Field hockey
4. Sport shooting
Surprised? We knew you would be.
Of course, it’s worth reinforcing that this data could be somewhat misleading based on the fact it’s limited to those athletes who listed their sports. In other words, there could be a whole bunch of male swimmers who limited the information in their bios, thus eliminating them from the data pool.
But based on what we know, it appears anyone who played tennis — of the traditional or the table variety — down in Rio was a hot ticket in the Tinder world.
