There's no denying Olympic athletes work hard while competing. And according to gold medalist Jamie Anderson, they like to play just as hard in their downtime.

Anderson, who won gold in the Women's Slopestyle on Sunday Feb. 9, chatted with Us Weekly and spilled the beans on how she and her fellow female athletes like to play matchmaker during their off-duty time at the Olympic Village.

"Tinder!" Anderson told Us Weekly, singling out the dating app. "Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes," she said, adding, "It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there."

Anderson goes on to admit that the app can be all too distracting, and that she had to refocus on what she's really there for. "There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting," she said of the temptations of Tinder. She even went so far as deleting her account.

Anderson went on to reveal how excited she is to get back home to Lake Tahoe, Calif. and celebrate "with all my girlfriends and dance."

Chances are when she does return home, she may not need Tinder to meet prospective dates now that she's a household name thanks to her gold medal-winning turn.

Anderson is also prolific on another app: Twitter, posting pictures, thoughts and day-to-day revelations about life in the Olympic Village. Check out a few of her tweets below:
