About Me

My name is Christian Olney and I am going into my first year at The Ohio State University. I am a biology major in the Dunn’s sports and wellness scholars program with pre-medicine intentions to work as an orthopedic surgeon.

Ever since I was young I’ve had a passion for sports and to grow as a person through them. I’ve played Rugby, soccer, and basketball but enjoy all sports.

SNAP, CRACKLE, POP.

Although that sounds like the famous jingle from Rice Krispies. That is not what is being discussed here. Those sounds are my ACL, MCL, and Mensicus  splitting in half early may 2017 effectively ending my future in sports so I thought. My injury though led me to 6 weeks of not walking and 6 months of physical therapy later until I was able to return to my High School Rugby Club for my senior season. Leading them to a 5th place finish in Indiana and being put on the All-State team.

My injury was gruesome and life changing even after being back into sports and feeing close to my old self I find my passion for elite sports lacking with every cream of my knees. Instead I have found a future in doing what my surgeon did for me. I found a passion to pursue medicine and help other teenage athletes recover and return after sports injuries.

Ohio States always been my dream school with the massive medical program they have along with the amount of sports and recreational activities they posses. The scholars Dunn’s Sports and Wellness was a perfect fit for me to stay involved in my passion for sports and also to allow me a chance to learn and grow along with other athletes to better serve them in the future.

Some hobbies I enjoy are weightlifting, reading, watching the latest movies, watching old but classic tv shows like “friends”, and enjoying all types of sports! The worst thing in my life was my injury it changed my life and my way of thinking. But it led me to my passion and I’m better for it. I wouldn’t change it for the world! Go Bucks!
