IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Clarissa Chun is looking forward to building the new women's wrestling program at Iowa.

The 40-year-old Chun is the first coach of a women’s wrestling program at a Power Five conference school.

Her first day on the job will be in February and the team will begin competition in the 2023-24 season.

The new coach had one of the best moments of her career at Iowa when she qualified for the 2012 United States Olympic team.
