The man who verbally harassed Olympian Sakura Kokumai and called her racial slurs was arrested after he attacked an elderly couple in the same park over the weekend, authorities said. 
Kokumai, 28, was training in an Orange, California, park on April 2 when a man began yelling at her and used slurs. She shared videos to her Instagram account and spoke about it during a media event for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. It was the video that helped get the man arrested. 
The incidents come amid a sharp rise in anti-Asian hate and discrimination since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Orange County experienced a tenfold increase in hate incident reports in 2020, per the Orange County Human Relations nonprofit.

(CNN) — Steph Curry will auction off a pair of custom-designed sneakers to raise money for the families of the victims of last month's Atlanta-area spa shootings.
The Golden State Warriors star wore the yellow, white and black shoes in his side's defeat to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday to show solidarity with the Asian community which has faced an increase of hate crimes over the past year.
The shoes, designed in tandem with the Bruce Lee Foundation, included Bruce Lee's painted face alongside his famous quote which reads: "Under the heavens, there is but one family."
"I think Stephen's gesture is a beautiful example of allyship and solidarity in action," said Shannon Lee, chairperson of the Bruce Lee Foundation board of directors.

Jazz news: Jordan Clarkson reacts Jeremy Lin shoutout praising Filipinos

Clarkson’s mother is from the Philippines, meaning that Clarkson is a proud Asian-American just like Lin himself. The talented scoring guard spent the first three and a half seasons of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Lin was on the Lakers in Clarkson’s rookie season in 2014-2015 when Kobe Bryant was in his second-to-last season in the NBA.
As for Clarkson, he would be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017-2018 in a trade that also sent Larry Nance Jr. to Cleveland. But during the 2019-2020 season, Clarkson has seemingly found a place to call home with the Utah Jazz after being traded again from the Cavaliers.
