Biography:

Olympian Julie Chu became the first Asian American woman to play for the United States women’s ice hockey team in 2002 at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. As a forward on the team, Chu contributed to winning Silver medals at the 2002 Games and the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. She also competed with the US women’s hockey team in 2006 at the Turin Olympics where the team took the Bronze medal. The three-time Olympic medalist played in 150 games for National Hockey Team USA, scoring 40 goals, 83 assists to date.

Sports Speaker Julie Chu started out playing soccer and figure skating before youth hockey piqued her interest. She played ice hockey throughout her childhood while attending Choate Rosemary Hall, and then went on to attend Harvard University following the 2002 Winter Olympics. During her time at Harvard, Chu collected a long list of achievements while playing for the Harvard Crimson women’s ice hockey team, including being named the all-time lead scoring player in NCAA history, all-time assists leader in NCAA history, and four-time All American. She was also named team captain. Since Julie started playing ice hockey, she has won four World Championship Gold medals and five Silvers. In 2007-2008 Chu decided to try coaching instead of playing ice hockey. As an assistant coach for the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs, Julie Chu helped the women’s ice hockey team win the NCAA Division I National Championships for the fourth time in history.

Off the ice, Julie Chu has been featured in several national publications including People Magazine, ESPN Magazine Body Issue, and Glamour Magazine. She has also appeared on NBC’s Today Show for her athletic accomplishments.
