STANFORD, Calif. - Kieran Chung received the Robert H. Hobbs Sportsmanship Award during an awards ceremony following racing for the Gill Coed National Championship at the Sail Newport Waterfront Center at Fort Adams and New York Yacht Club. His name will be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame display located in the Robert Crown Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Chung, a senior from Newport Beach, California, showed outstanding sportsmanship during his collegiate sailing career.

“This is a huge surprise,” said Chung, “I never thought I would receive it. It is humbling to be named with past recipients of this award -– especially Adam Roberts, who was a coach at Stanford – it is a unique award and I am really proud.”

Chung grew up sailing at Newport Harbor Yacht Club after his grandparents suggested he give it a try at age 13.

In addition to Chung’s excellent college sailing record, he was named an All-American in 2014. Chung will graduate from Stanford with a major in biomechanical engineering and plans to apply to medical school.

“I definitely want to continue to sail,” said Chung. “I will be team racing this summer domestically and in England and hope to pick up another class that will be fun to sail in the future.”
