Hanna Olsen (23 June 1889 – 10 June 1990) was a Swedish fencer who competed at the 1924 and 1928 Summer Olympics. In Paris in 1924 she competed in the women's foil event, but was eliminated in the semi-finals, placing fourth in her pool. Four years later she competed in the same event, but did not win any bouts. She was born in Karlskrona and was a member of the Stockholm's Kvinnliga Fäktklubb.[1] She was a six-time Swedish national champion in the women's individual foil, winning the title in 1918, 1919, 1923, 1925, 1926, and 1931.[2] She died in Kristinehamn less than two weeks before her 101st birthday.[1]
