She won the 2008 world championship, the 2009 and 2010 Pan American championships and finished second at the 2011 Pan American Games. Chun - who is half-Chinese and half-Japanese and grew up in Honolulu - finished seventh at the 2011 worlds. She has been competing at the senior level for more than a decade, starting with a win at the Dave Schulz Memorial Invitational and a silver at the Pan American championships, both in 2000. Chun narrowly missed the Olympics in 2004, finishing second at the trials.

She moved on to Missouri Valley College before graduating from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs with a degree in communications. Chun - who also competed in water polo and judo in high school - enjoys surfing and judo in her spare time.
