Olympic Skier Nick Goepper Wins Bronze, Sets Sights On Winning Hearts (Photo)


While Tinder might be all the rage at the 2014 Winter Olympics, American skier Nick Goepper is going old-school in his dating approach. Well, as old-school as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are, anyway.

The 19-year-old Indiana native already picked up a bronze medal in Thursday’s slopestyle event, and now he’s ready to pick up a date. Goepper told US Weekly that he will be choosing one lucky lady from his social media feed to go on a date with following the Olympics.

The eligible bachelor made the announcement while appearing on the “TODAY” show on Friday, and he added that girls simply need to respond with the hashtag #iwanttodatenick. One girl will then be flown out to wherever Goepper is training at the time.

“[I’m looking for a] super fun, easy relationship,” Goepper explained to US.

“I’m just gonna surprise them,” he said of the impending date. “Dinner and maybe a sleigh ride. Maybe some skiing. We’ll see.”

If the Olympic skier really wants to surprise them, skiing might not be the best activity for the date, but, hey, he’s got some time to work out the details. [tweet https://twitter.com/NickGoepper/status/434466815126032385 align=’center’]
