Dan Olson Bio in Brief

Like many other accomplished Canadian dart players, Dan first started playing darts when he received his first set of darts for Christmas. Full of natural talent and able to throw accurately and consistently shortly after beginning, it wasn’t long before he was encouraged to go out playing at his local legion by his brother and brother in-law.

Within his first couple of years of play Dan quickly became a local player of note and one of the “Up and Coming” young players to watch.

Steady and consistent, Dan continued to play at his local legion learning how to remain consistent and steady and above all learning how to win.

In only his until his 7th year of playing, Dan found himself on where most players only dream of – on Team Ontario, one of the toughest provincial teams in Canada.

Shortly afterward, in 1991, he qualified for the Winmau World Masters and represented Canada in England.

With many milestones achieved, and at a crossroads, he took a break from competitive darts for several years, only coming back to the game in 1997. This is around the time he met his current wife Sue and stepson Joey.

Sue convinced Dan to follow his passion for darts and play competitively again.

In fall of 2010, Dan Olson received sponsorship from Fit Flight, as one of the first North American players, and first Canadian players chosen to represent the brand.
