Former Olympian on blind date hopes medals give subtle hint of success

Nashville, TN - Robert Jennings, a five-time Olympic synchronized swimming champion, wore his medals on a blind date Thursday night, hoping the prizes would give a subtle hint of his past success.

"I'm going to wear the medals, but I'm not going to mention them," he reportedly told a friend. "If she notices them, I'll go there. If not, that's ok. I don't want to come off as arrogant."

According to a restaurant employee, the date noticed the medals about halfway through dinner. Jennings spent the next hour recounting his victories and showing her performance clips on his iPhone.

Witnesses say Jennings was showing her footage from the 2016 games when she received an emergency phone call from her roommate and had to leave unexpectedly. Jennings promised to email her the rest of the Olympic video.

It is unclear if there will be a second date, but a server overheard Jennings on the phone telling a friend he thought he was golden.
