Senior career

Olsen made her senior debut at the Elite Canada in February. She placed fourteenth in the all-around and won the title on vault. She went on to compete at the WOGA Classic in Frisco, Texas, winning vault and floor exercise gold and all-around silver. In March, she competed at the International Gymnix, winning gold on vault and bronze on floor, and placing fourth with her team and twelfth in the all-around. In April she competed at the 2016 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships (Everett, Washington) winning vault gold, team silver, floor exercise bronze, and placing fourth in the all-around and seventh on balance beam. In June, she competed at the Canadian National Championships, winning vault gold, floor exercise silver, and placing fourth in the all-around, ninth on uneven bars, and eleventh on balance beam. She was named to the Canadian Olympic team in late June.[8]

Rio Olympics

Canada competed in the last subdivision of qualifications, starting on floor exercise. While Canada did not qualify to the team final, finishing out of the top 8 by less than 0.200, Olsen debuted an Amanar, and while she overrotated, her average was enough to qualify her to the vault final in sixth place. She finished eighth in the final after touching her knee to the mat on a lunge forward on the Amanar.

2017

In February, Olsen competed at the Elite Canada, winning gold on vault and placing fifth on bars and sixth in the all-around. Based on solid showing at Elite Canada she was selected to compete at both the International Gymnix and the City of Jesolo Trophy, winning vault at both competitions and winning silver in the all around and bronze on floor at the International Gymnix, the first time she has ever won an all around medal at a senior international competition. Later that year at the Canadian National Championships she won her seventh consecutive national vault title and was named to Canada's World Championship team along with Olympic teammates Ellie Black and Isabela Onyshko and first year senior Brooklyn Moors. The other two Rio olympians Brittany Rogers and Rose Woo were named alternates, placing all five members of Canada's Olympic team in the world championships selection camps. She competed at the Varna World Cup before the world championships, winning silver on both vault and floor, debuting a new floor routine. At the World Championships, she competed vault and Floor Exercise, Qualifying 4th into vault finals, debuting a new vault for her and the hardest vault at the championships, the Cheng and competing a clean routine on floor to score a 13.133, just three tenths behind the eventual final qualifier and compatriot Ellie Black. Before the vault final she submitted the Triple Twisting Yurchenko, a vault that only one other woman, Hong Un Jong, had ever attempted and a vault that no woman had ever gotten credit for. However, she decided to only compete the Amanar in order to avoid injury. Even with the Amanar and the Cheng, she tied world champion Maria Paseka of Russia for the highest vault difficulty in Event Finals. However, she overrotated and crashed her Amanar, finishing seventh, upgrading only one spot from the eighth-place finish she received at the Rio Olympics. Her vault average from the qualifying rounds would have been enough to earn her the bronze medal. Afterwards, she revealed that she had committed to the University of Alabama’s gymnastics team, and will begin competing for them in the 2018-2019 school year.

2018

She began 2018 at Elite Canada, continuing her streak on vault by winning the title again. She was selected to compete at the International Gymnix, where she again won gold on vault. Based on her strong performances on vault at the first two competitions of the season, she was selected to the Canadian team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games at Gold Coast, Australia. The Canadian team for this championships was exactly the same as the one that went to Rio until Rose Woo pulled out due to injury and was replaced by Jade Chrobok. Competing on only vault and floor, Olsen qualified in first to the vault final and tied for third to the floor exercise final and helped the Canadian team win the team gold medal. In the vault final she scored a 14.800 for her first vault and a 14.366 for her second, winning the gold medal. In the floor exercise final she scored a 13.266 to conclude her Commonwealth Games, enough to secure the bronze medal.

Olsen joined the Alabama Crimson Tide women's gymnastics team in the fall of 2018 and was named to Canada's world championship team as well. At the world championships she qualified in second into the vault final and contributed to Canada's historic fourth-place finish as a team. In event finals she repeated her placement from qualifications, finishing second. This is Canada's third world medal ever, second in apparatus finals and first on vault. This also ties Ellie Black and Ana Padurariu for best Canadian finish individually, as Black also won a silver medal in the individual all-around at worlds the previous year, and Padurariu won a silver in the balance beam finals one day after Olsen's vault performance.

2019

Olsen made her debut as a collegian at Alabama on January 5, 2019, winning the vault title in a quad meet against Southeast Missouri, Temple and Northern Illinois.[9] At the Southeastern Conference Championships, Olsen helped Alabama finish third behind LSU and Florida.[10] She also received All SEC and SEC Freshman honors for her performance on the balance beam where she received a 9.925. At regionals she contributed to Alabama’s third place finish behind Michigan and UCLA, just missing a spot at nationals for the first time since 1982. She was named Alabama Gymnastics Rookie of the Year at the conclusion of the 2019 season.

In May Olsen competed at the Canadian National Championships. She only competed on vault, balance beam, and floor exercise. She won gold on vault and placed fifth and fourth and beam and floor respectively.[11] In June Olsen was named to the team to compete at the 2019 Pan American Games alongside Ellie Black, Ana Padurariu (later replaced by Isabela Onyshko),[12] Brooklyn Moors, and Victoria-Kayen Woo.[13] At the Pan American Games, Olsen was slated to compete on vault and floor. She performed relatively simple routines on both events than she had the previous two seasons in addition to mistakes on her landings, causing her to qualify only fifth into the vault final and missing out on the floor final. During the vault final Olsen upgraded her López to a Cheng and was able to win the bronze behind Black and Yesenia Ferrera of Cuba.[14]

On September 4 Olsen was named to the team to compete at the 2019 World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany alongside Ana Padurariu, Ellie Black, Brooklyn Moors, and Victoria Woo.[15] During qualifications Olsen helped Canada place fifth, thereby qualifying Canada a team to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Individually she qualified to vault finals. During the vault final she finished in fourth place behind Americans Simone Biles and Jade Carey and Ellie Downie of Great Britain.[16]

2021

At the Canadian National Championships Olsen placed eleventh in the all-around but won gold on vault.[17] On June 17 Olsen was officially named to Canada's 2020 Olympic team alongside Ellie Black, Brooklyn Moors, and Ava Stewart.[18] Olsen competed all four events in qualifications, contributing to the Canadian team’s score on vault, beam and floor. The team placed 10th, missing the team final and Olsen qualified to the Olympic vault final for a second straight games.

Early life

As a high school student, Olsen attended Centennial Secondary in Coquitlam, British Columbia outside of her residence city to remain close to her six-day a week training at Omega Gymnastics in Coquitlam.[3]
