It hasn't been all work and no play for Jamie Anderson at the 2014 Olympics. The 23-year-old American snowboarder shared with Us Weekly senior reporter Jennifer Peros on Monday, Feb. 10 how she and her fellow female athletes like to play matchmaker while chilling together in the Olympic Village in Sochi.

"Tinder!" Anderson said with a laugh about the dating app. "Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there." 

Anderson eventually had to remind herself, however, to focus on the real prize and put her love life on hold. "There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting," she said of using Tinder. "I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics."

Turning off Tinder ended up working in Anderson's favor -- at least in her career. She won the gold medal in Women's Slopestyle Event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi on Sunday, Feb. 9.

Anderson told Us she was looking forward to celebrating her huge win back home with friends in Lake Tahoe, Calif.
