Biography

At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Olsen was a push athlete for Steven Holcomb’s Night Train four-man crew that won gold, the first for a U.S. men’s sled since 1948. Four years later, Olsen finished 12th in Nick Cunningham’s four-man sled. Olsen has since transitioned from being a push athlete to a driver. He discovered the sport in 2007 after his mother, Kim, heard about tryouts on the radio.
