Tinder to Team USA:

Focus On Winning

... Not Boning!

2/13/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.
