Who needs the Glazers! Daughter of Serena Williams, 5, Olympia is the “youngest owner of two teams in professional sports” after taking over LA Golf Club – adding to the portfolio that already includes Angel City FC
Serena Williams’ daughter Olympia is the proud owner of her second professional sports club – and that at the tender age of five.
Olympia – whose full name is Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. – was announced as co-owner of the LA Golf Club by her entrepreneur father Alexis Ohanian this week – when he posted a sweet snap of the elementary school student hitting a golf ball on a pristine green.
The five-year-old is already a part owner of the Los Angeles-based women’s soccer franchise Angel City. The club’s co-owners also include Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman and Christina Aguilera.
Ohanian explained that she is not even the youngest co-owner as her unborn sibling, who is due to join in the summer, will also be involved in running the high-profile golf club.
