Oh, Tinder. Sometimes the dating app finds you some gems, other times you get some real duds. Sabryna Salazar, a 20-year-old student at the University of Texas, was matched with a gem so hidden, she didn’t know it was future gold medal-winning swimmer Joseph Schooling. If you don’t know who Schooling is, then you don’t watch the Olympics — because he’s the dude that took away first place from Michael Phelps in the 100m butterfly.


“I didn’t know who he was when I matched with him. I figured he was a swimmer here at UT though based on his profile,” Salazar told BuzzFeed of Schooling’s photo, which shows his swimmer’s body in the Speedo-est of Speedos with the Singapore flag behind him.

“I was watching Michael Phelps in the 100m butterfly race and then Joseph won. I noticed the name sounded familiar and the announcers kept saying he was a Longhorn so I looked back through my Tinder matches and found out it was him,” she said, adding that she recently unmatched with him.


You can’t win ’em all but moral of the story? Don’t dismiss everyone you match with on dating apps lightly. Especially when THAT’S their profile pic. More shallow than a wading pool? Maybe. But come on. Look at him!
