Appreciating the efforts of his sports team, Ohanian thanked Angel City FC for raising awareness for pancreatic cancer by posting a cute picture of his daughter from the event. Olympia, dressed in a green frock and pink hoodie, is holding the hands of a person in a T-Rex costume in the picture.

“Youngest owner in pro sports and she insisted on a photo with the T-Rex. What a boss move. Thank you @acfcstreet for another amazing job with the LA Community. @weareangelcity was here in full force for @estalee11 💜  today in support of @lacancerchallenge 💪 #FuckCancer,” wrote Ohanian.

Since Ohanian is a leading investor at Angel City FC, that essentially makes his daughter the youngest owner of a professional sports team. Based out of California, Angel City FC is a planned expansion team for the National Women’s Soccer League that is expected to compete in 2022.

Meanwhile, Williams hasn’t competed since retiring from her first-round match at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. She withdrew from the US Open citing a hamstring injury and has dropped to World No.41 in the WTA rankings.
