Meet Nic Roldan, One of America's Top Polo Talents

By Erin Lentz | May 31, 2019 | People

An impressive eight-goaler, Roldan competes for Audi in the 26-goal World Polo League. When he was just 15 he became the youngest player ever to win the U.S. Open. A third-generation polo player, Roldan is one of America’s top talents, competing in U.S. and international tournaments. He’s a global ambassador for The Husk, among other highly visible off-the-field collaborations. “I try and promote the sport in the best way possible,” Roldan says. “Polo isn’t the easiest career to make a living in, but I’ve had a lot of amazing experiences. It’s nice to see the younger players go through the same process as me.”
