Buckeyes In The 2018 Winter Olympics

Four Ohio State alumnae will be competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The 2018 Winter Olympics are kicking off and unless you have loads of money stocked away in your bank account, you probably will be enjoying them from the comfort of your own couch. As you munch on some takeout Chipotle and watch the world’s most impressive athletes compete in all kinds of competitions, here are some Ohio State alumni who are slated to participate in the Olympics this year.

Matt McIlvane – Class of ’08 – Assistant Coach for Germany’s Men’s Ice Hockey Team

OSU alum, Matt McIlvane, is back on the ice, but this time he’ll be sporting a suit and tie rather than shoulder pads and ice skates. In McIlvane’s three years as a skater for the Buckeyes, he totaled 52 points on 15 goals and 37 assists and he is currently tied for 16th on the list of all-times games played for the OSU men’s ice hockey team.

Natalie Spooner – Class of ’11 – Canada’s Women’s Ice Hockey Team

Natalie Spooner is gearing up for another go at the Olympics where last time she and the Canadian women’s hockey team was able to secure a gold medal. As a Buckeye, Spooner totaled 113 points on 69 goals and 44 assists while playing in a total of 104 games in her collegiate career.

Annie Svedin – Class of ’14 – Sweden’s Women’s Ice Hockey Team

Annie Svedin has been suiting up for Sweden’s National Team for quite some time now and in 2018, they look to take home a medal after missing out last Olympics. In her time on the ice for OSU, Svedin played in 134 total games where the defensemen finished her collegiate career with 27 total points.

Minttu Tuominen – Class of ’13 – Finland’s Women’s Ice Hockey Team

Minttu Tuominen is a forward for the Finland women’s ice hockey team and this year we’re sure they are looking to improve after taking home the bronze medal in 2014 and 2010. While Tuominen was still skating for the Buckeyes, she finished her career with 49 total points and 16 of those came from goals.
