This Tinder user matched (then accidentally ignored) an Olympic gold medallist

Normally it’s no biggie because you’ve probably made hundreds of matches, but for Salazar this one really hurt because she’d missed out on a date with an Olympic gold medallist. She was suitably disappointed by her Tinder fail.
my tinder match just won the 100M butterfly final and beat Michael Phelps— sab (@sabwow) August 13, 2016

Salazar claims that last April fellow student at the University of Texas, Joseph Schooling, had struck up a conversation with her on the dating app. Little did she know that the Singaporean swimmer would shoot to fame in Rio by beating Michael Phelps to bag gold in the 100m butterfly. Luckily the Twittersphere was on hand to comfort her.
and not replying to his message was my greatest failure— sab (@sabwow) August 13, 2016
Somewhat awkwardly, the Daily Mail says that Schooling already has a girlfriend. He has been pictured with Casey Shomaker for the last year, and Salazar’s tweet might get him in some hot water. But for Salazar, this is a textbook case of “the one that got away”. Or swam away, in this case.
