Olympic athletes have been caught on Tinder as part of a humorous Instagram account dedicated to following their exploits.

The account "Tinderpeyongchang", a spinoff of "sportsswipe", has dedicated itself to finding the Winter Olympic athletes on Tinder and sharing their profiles.

Bobsleighers, skiers and skaters all appear on the page, although none of New Zealand's 32 athletes feature.

The Olympics has long had a reputation for sex exploits, with large amounts of condoms being handed out to athletes free at each games.

This year was no exception, in fact Pyeongchang has broken the record for the number of condoms available at a winter games with 110,000 on hand for athletes, Time reports.

That's not even close to the number at the recent Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics though, where a whopping 450,000 condoms were donated to athletes.

Shortly before the 2012 London Summer Olympics swimmer Ryan Lochte told sports broadcaster ESPN around 70-75 percent of athletes had sex at the games and it was better to compete single.

"My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend big mistake," he said.

"Now I'm single, so London should be really good. I'm excited."
