Top Ranked Quake Player Joins Group of World Class Video Gamers

(Woodland Hills, CA) - Auravision, Inc., Master Licensor for the Fatal1ty brand, and Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel jointly announced today that Magnus "fojji" Olsson has signed an agreement to become an F-Player. The 22-year-old professional PC video gamer from Hässleholm, Sweden is an emerging global star in video gaming and is among the best Quake players in the world. Fojji, and his Quake 4 TDM team, the iCE cLIMBERS, recently won the GGL Quake 4 TDM championship for the fourth time. Magnus Olsson joins Alessandro "stermy" Avallone, who, in his first start as an F-Player, took 3rd place and a $70,000 purse at the CPL World Tour Finals this past November in New York City.

"Magnus is exactly the type of person we're looking for to join F-Players," said Johnathan Wendel. "He's bright, well spoken and games at the highest level - he's a winner." Olsson expressed great excitement with this arrangement. "F-Players, Fatal1ty and the entire Fatal1ty Brand Partners group, have been very professional in their approach to organized video gaming," he stated. "They bring so much more to the table than just gaming, including business and lifestyle opportunities that I wouldn't be able to access by myself."

Fojji will be appearing with other F-Players at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles May 10-12. They will be taking part in various activities from the Fatal1ty booth #1606 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Fojji will also be joining stermy and Fatal1ty at the Intel Gaming Party Wednesday evening, May 10.
