Online speed dating: The next Olympic sport?

Thursday, August 14th, 2021

Do you have the charm and all the right moves, but are not competition-ready when it comes to speed, strength, and endurance?  If so, SpeedDate has the Olympic event for you. 

For the rest of the Olympics, SpeedDate is hosting an Olympic-themed online speed dating competition to determine the world’s best online daters.  The event will run through Sunday, August 24 at which time we will award gold, silver, and bronze medals to the men and women who match with the most other singles.   Even if you don’t take home the gold, you just may find someone you want to start dating.”

To get daters in the Olympic mood, we will add Olympic-themed ice-breaker questions, such as: If you could go on a date with any athlete, who would it be?  Which sport has the sexiest athletes? Which two athletes would make the best couple? 

Early favorite in the women’s competition is 26-year-old San Jose State University student Francesca Salcido who made news around the world when she had more than 300 dates in 24 hours on in February.  Does she have what it takes to be named top online dater - or will it be you?  Only time will tell.
