Q&A with Kelli Chung

By NU Athletic Communications

Kelli Chung worked hard to add depth to the roster in 2017, but did not see action in a meet. Chung has been a standout outside the gym in her first two seasons, earning Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2017. She earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in each of her first three semesters, and she was also named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team for her work in the community in both 2016 and 2017.

Kelli took a few minutes from her challenging academic and athletic schedule to answer some questions and give us a little insight into her life outside the gym.
