Athletes Are Saying Tinder In The Olympic Village Is ‘Next Level’

The country had previously been home to the Olympics when Moscow hosted the Summer Games. Sochi was awash in controversy in the months leading up to the Games, as the choice of a city with a temperate climate as a Winter Games site led to concerns about whether there would be adequate snow cover.
