Table Tennis Players Were the Most Right-Swiped Female Athletes on Tinder at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Every two years, thousands upon thousands of the world’s greatest athletes gather in the Olympic Village. They come first and foremost to live out their dreams as athletes. However, most of them are between the ages of 18 and 30, and most of them have incredible bodies. So once they are done living out their dreams as athletes, most of them want to party. And of course by party I mean get drunk and have lots and lots of sex.

I’m not making this up. The phenomenon of Olympic bacchanalia is well-documented.

Of course, in the olden days, athletes had to hook up the old-fashioned way, which involved walking up to people you didn’t know and employing a complex series of socially acceptable signals to indicate that you found them sexually desirable. These days things are much simpler thanks to Tinder. If an Olympian is looking to hook up, they just pick up their phone and swipe right until they find someone who’s on the same page. (Click here if you don’t know how Tinder works, grandpa.)

So which athletes were right-swiped the most at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio? Well, if most people had to guess they’d probably say swimmers or volleyball players. But most people would be wrong.

As it turns out, the most right-swiped men were tennis players, followed by weightlifters, gymnasts, sport shooters, judokas, and boxers. Swimmers didn’t even make the top six!

On the women’s side table tennis players took the top spot. Not Beach volleyball, or track and field, but table tennis. And they were followed by hockey players, rowers, weightlifters, rugby players, and then swimmers.

Apparently actual Olympians know something the rest of us do not.
