Olympic surfing champion Carissa Moore won the AAU James E. Sullivan Award as the United States’s most outstanding college or Olympic athlete. Moore is the first surfer and first native Hawaiian to win the 92nd annual award. She was presented the trophy on Thursday night in Honolulu. Moore is a five-time world champion and two-time winner of the Triple Crown of Surfing. She became the first Olympic champion in women’s short board at the 2020 Tokyo Games. She grew up surfing in the same waters as Duke Kahanamoku, the noted “father of surfing.”
