Two former Missouri Valley College female wrestlers are getting set to compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Clarissa Chun of Kapolai, Hawaii will represent the US Olympic Wrestling Team, competing in the Freestyle 48kg weight class, while Maria Dunn of Tamuning, Guam will represent the 2012 Guam Olympic Wrestling Team, competing in the Freestyle 63 kg weight class.

Both women competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, with Chun advancing to the semifinals in the Freestyle 48 kg weight class, and finishing in fifth place, while Dunn was defeated in her opening round match in the Freestyle 63 kg weight class.

The two will begin competing Wednesday August 8.  Live video will be available during the women’s wrestling competition at http://www.nbcolympics.com/online-listings/sport=wrestling/index.html.  Viewers will have to sign up for the online live streaming.
