Lindsey Vonn Revealed That She Didn’t Get Any Action At The Winter Olympics
| Last updated
Representing your country at the Olympic Games is the highest honour that most sports stars can achieve. To compete against the world's best on the biggest stage is the pinnacle of every athlete's career (unless you're a football player - they don't seem to care that much).
But as well as being there for the serious business of sporting competition, they like to have a bit of fun as well. After all, you're not going to get the opportunity to go to that many Olympic Games so you might as well have a laugh.
With that many highly strung, stressed out athletes in the same place, there have been countless stories told about wild parties, drinking sessions, and fooling around in the Olympic Village during the games.
This year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea seemed as if it would be no different - Tinder released statistics saying that there had been a 348% increase in use of the dating app in the area during the Games.
There was also a 565% increase in right swipes, and a 644% increase in matches. Organisers also handed out around 110,000 condoms to athletes.
Those statistics seem to suggest that at least someone is getting some action in the cold weather.
One person who definitely wasn't interested was Lindsey Vonn. The 33 year old skier who won bronze on the slopes in Korea was asked about the Olympics' reputation as a sex hotspot in an interview with TMZ.
She said: "It wasn't going down for me, I'll tell you what.
"There's definitely a lot of hype, there's a lot of hype with it, but I don't know, you'd have to ask someone else who got lucky 'cause I didn't."
It's definitely not the North Korean team, either.
At least that's what Dr Marcus Bell, of Sheffield University thinks. He said "It is unlikely that North Korean athletes will be permitted to fraternise with other athletes in such a way."
"While the North Korean athletes are in South Korea they are very unlikely to be permitted to go outside of the official Olympic areas.
"Certainly, they will not be permitted to go wherever they please and to speak with whomever they please, because state officials will accompany them at all times and will monitor their interactions.
"It is unlikely that North Korean athletes will require warning on such activities, because the message is clear and will have been clear from early on: they are in Pyeongchang to represent the DPRK, not to fraternise with other athletes."
No luck either for Canadian snowboarder Mark McMorris; he thinks there could be a few reasons for that though. He told TMZ: "It's a 'dry village', if you will - no alcohol, thus rendering us 'dry' all around."
Cold weather, no booze? No thanks.
