ROAD TO SOCHI
Since claiming the 2010 Olympic gold medal with Steven Holcomb’s four-man crew, Olsen has helped push the U.S. to podium finishes at three consecutive world championships – highlighted by the 2012 World Championships title. He suffered an adductor injury during the 2012-13 season that left him sidelined for part of the season. He returned in 2013-14 to earn his second Olympic berth as a member of the USA-2 men’s push crew.
