Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., daughter of tennis legend Serena Williams and Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, became the youngest partial team owner in the history of sports. At the age of two she is part owner of ‘Angel City’, the brand new National Women’s Soccer league’s expansion team based in Los Angeles.
The toddler joins a group of stars that include but are not limited to Natalie Portman, Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Garner, and America Ferrera.
Olympia’s father Alexis Ohanian and his venture capital firm led the charge on the investment.
He stated in a press release, “As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front row seat to this revolution. I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter.”
Team ownership is quite the front row seat.
