Arnold Knows Me: The Tommy Kono Story

Tommy Kono’s story is one of great hardship and triumph. Although all of us have endured myriad ups and downs, this former weightlifter was a “two-time Olympic gold medalist, an Olympic silver medalist and six-time World Champion.” For those who love a good success story, this event will share the nitty gritty for all who wish to see. The fine folks at KVIE are hosting this Tuesday soiree and a special Q&A session with the director and producers Ryan Yamamoto and Suzanne Phan. Tommy Kono is a Japanese-American man who made an indelible imprint on the weightlifting sport as a whole and is a symbol of strength for countless Japanese and Japanese-Americans living here and abroad. Head on over to the gorgeous KVIE studios located at 2030 West El Camino Ave. in Sacramento. The event officially starts at 6 p.m. Submerge does not want to give too much away, but you can easily visit to get the lowdown. And while the show is sold out, KVIE may release a few at the door. It as, after all, an Eventbrite-ticketed event. Hope to see you there.
