Within a few minutes of Olympic athletes arriving in London on Sunday for the games, same-sex buddy locater Grindr crashed, either due to a massive influx of hot gay-sex seeking athletes or a brilliant marketing campaign. As one Londoner explained to People UK, "It happened almost as soon as the teams got here. Either loads of athletes were logging on to meet fellow Olympians or were looking to bag a local."

This is somewhat astounding as there are reportedly only 14 openly gay athletes participating in the Olympiads.

Grinder creator Joel Simkhai apologized for the minor glitch, saying, "I want to personally ­apologize to users. I know it was ­frustrating. I was ­frustrated myself. I also rely on Grindr in my day-to-day personal life. It made me feel disconnected." Fortunately, it took a full 24 hours for the site to be back up and running. Let the games begin.
