24 | Christian Olsen
We are pleased to announce the leadoff for our second group of signees, another young local player, Christian Olsen. Christian has competed at the international level, winning a gold medal with Team USA U-23 Open in 2013.
Christian has been a standout player in his four years for Emory Juice Ultimate, where he is currently a senior and has spent time as team captain.
Christian stayed local with his club career, starting in the mixed division with Atlanta Bucket including a trip to Club Nationals. He is currently a second year player for Atlanta Chain Lightning Ultimate, making the trip to Club Nationals both seasons he has played with the team.
Although he learned to play ultimate from the man who actually wrote the book on fundamental ultimate, Michael Baccarini, Christian still describes his play as “stylish.” Not only is Christian now a professional ultimate frisbee player, but he is also a professional jazz pianist! Please help The Atlanta Hustle give a warm welcome to Christian Olsen! #stylin'
