Sunset senior has chance to box in the 2020 Summer Olympics (video)


While the Winter Olympics play on TVs across the world, one Sunset High School student is staying busy in the gym training for a shot in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Stephen Acosta, a senior at Sunset, will compete in Poland in March for a chance to earn his spot on the USA Olympic team. He trained in January at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado.

“I try to be a great student, I don’t give anyone any problems. I stay humble and get through the day,” Acosta said. “I can’t believe I have this shot, I’m 18 years old and I’m the youngest one on the team.”
