Shallon Olsen, a member of Canada's 2016 Rio Olympic team, has announced her commitment to Alabama for 2018-2019. She signed her National Letter of Intent (NLI) and will officially be part of the Crimson Tide next year.
Olsen represented Canada last month at the 2017 World Championships in Montreal, earning a spot in the vault final, and took seventh.
Olsen has huge difficulty on both vault and floor with a double twisting double tuck, triple twist, and the potential to compete a Yurchenko triple on vault. While we likely won't see her compete that in NCAA gymnastics, she will bring immense talent and experience to Bama.
Olsen will be a huge asset to the Crimson Tide and we look forward to seeing her there next year!
