2008 Summer Olympics
In rowing at the 2008 Summer Olympics (lightweight double sculler) in Beijing, Olsen and Juliane Rasmussen seemed for a long time to get the third place after Japan, but ended at second place, and was qualified for the semifinale. However, they also got the fourth place in the semifinal (only the three best qualifies for the final), and lost. Their class was later won by The Netherlands.
