The truth about Olympic dating app called ‘Olynder’ being used in the Athletes’ Village in Tokyo

Australian professional basketballer Cayla George has shed light on a number of rumours floating around about athletes at the Tokyo Olympics

The sports star appeared on KIIS FM’s Mix 1023 with Erin Phillips and Soda on Friday and confirmed that a number of her single teammates have been using a Tinder-style dating app in the Olympic village, called Olynder. 

The Opals player, who is happily married, also spoke about the beds in the village and said they were actually made to ‘withstand’ any naughty behavior amid rumours they are cardboard ‘anti-sex’ beds.

‘I think they’ve made them strong enough to withstand that kind of behaviour,’ Cayla said. 

‘I think they’re pretty solid. There are some really big athletes around, I have two extenders on my bed… they obviously knew our height,’ she added. 

Speaking about the dating app Olynder, Cayla said she only heard about it recently, but obviously isn’t using it herself as she’s happily married to husband Kailou George.

‘It’s a pretty hot app in the village,’ Cayla said. 

‘Apparently it’s all the craze! I’m not on the app, I’m living vicariously through my single teammates though,’ she said with a laugh.  

It was reported earlier this week meanwhile that people using the dating app Tinder have changed their location to the Olympic village in a bid to snag an athlete for a date.

Tinder has a passport feature which is available by paying for a premium account and allows users to search for cities and pinpoint an exact location.

While people usually use the feature if they are due to travel or move house, New York comedian Reed Kavner has decided to use it as an opportunity to meet an Olympic athlete.

He moved the pin in the Olympic village and is now swiping on athletes. 

The video which was shown on TikTok has since gone viral and has got more than 6.5million views.

Since the video, other TikTok users have shared similar videos of setting their locations to Olympic Village. 

Speaking to Business Insider, Mr Kavner said: ‘I’m always looking for fun and weird and unexpected ways to use technology. That’s what’s behind a lot of the comedy work I do.’

Rumours started at the beginning of the Olympics that athletes were said to be sleeping on ‘anti-sex beds’.

The sustainable beds are made out of recycled cardboard and can hold up to 200kg — but there are rumours the bunks were built to deter athletes from hooking up.

They have apparently been designed to crumble when more than one person climbs on — so scores of athletes from across the world’s teams have taken to social media to share hilarious clips of them competing to debunk the anti-sex myth.
