STAMFORD, CT – Olympian Julie Chu, leads the class announced for the Fairfield County Sports Hall of Fame, which is overseen by the Fairfield County Sports Commission, Inc.

Chu's 14-year hockey career as a member of the U.S. Women’s National team has been filled with major accomplishments and honors. The Fairfield, Conn. native is a four-time Olympian and four-time world champion. She has been a leader of women's hockey in the United States and has won three silver medals and a bronze in the Olympics. She carried the flag for the U.S. delegation at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, earlier this year.
