Fan Friday: Clarissa Chun

Today’s edition of ESPN Honolulu “Fan Friday: Talk Story” is all about wrestling with greatness! Our featured guest today is none other than two-time Olympian Clarissa Chun, who last month was named head coach of the University of Iowa’s inaugural women’s wrestling program.

Chun, a Roosevelt alum, won a state title in 1998, the first year girls wrestling was sanctioned as a high school sport. She later attended Missouri Valley College and embarked on a highly successful wrestling career in the international ranks. Among her accomplishments, Chun captured gold at the 2008 World Championships in Tokyo and bronze in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

She was recently elected to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and will be formally inducted next June. In 2018, she was inducted into the Hawaii Sports Hall of Fame.

Watch Dave Kawada’s exclusive interview with Chun on our ESPN Honolulu Facebook page. The interview will be available for viewing starting at 10:00 a.m.
