Tinder to Team USA:

Focus On Winning

... Not Boning!

Team USA is obsessed with Tinder -- the app that helps you find people to bang -- but now, the company's co-founder is begging the athletes to KEEP IT IN THEIR PANTS until after their events.

Earlier this week, gold-medal winning snowboarder Jamie Anderson told US Weekly, "Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level ... There are some cuties on there.”

She added, "There was a point where I had to be like OK, this is way too distracting. I deleted my account to focus on the Olympics.”

We spoke with Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen, who has a surprising message for the Olympians: Focus on kicking ass ... not tapping it.

"Tinder is a great way to meet new people when you're traveling and want to get the most out of your experience in a new city, but for now, focus on giving it your all while competing."

"Tinder will always be here when you're done."

Of course, Olympic Village has a reputation for being a "debaucherous" sex party ... and the app only makes it that much easier to find an athlete to bone.

Go USA.

Does the app give any HIV or STD information? Of course not, that would require a conscious and then folks who deal with Tinder would have to have a brain to understand it.
