Women's Olympic Team Press Conference
Since taking over the Women's Senior National Team, Adam Krikorian has been just about perfect. From his arrival in 2009 Team USA has competed in 12 major FINA Championships and come away with Gold in nine. This includes the 2009 FINA World Championship, the 2010 and 2014 FINA World Cups, the 2012 Olympic Games, and five FINA World League Super Final crowns. He's helped the United States maintain a number-one world ranking for the majority of his tenure and was honored in 2013 with the USOC National Coach of Year Award, only the second water polo coach to receive the honor. In October of last year he was named the 2013 Jack Kelly Fair Play Award recipient by the USOC for his accountability and composure during the 2012 Olympic Games semifinal match.
Krikorian was named head coach of the USA Water Polo Women's Senior National Team on March 27, 2009. He had been head coach of the UCLA men's and women's programs for 10 years prior.
A standout player at UCLA from 1992 to 1995, Krikorian captained the squad in his final year, leading UCLA to the 1995 Men's NCAA Championship, the school's first title in 23 years.
Krikorian has earned National Women's Water Polo Coach of the Year honors five times: 2001 and from 2005 through 2008. He also received National Men's Coach of the Year honors in 2004 after leading the UCLA men's program to its eighth overall NCAA championship. He has guided the women's team to seven national championships, six sanctioned by the NCAA, including a string of five consecutive titles. In addition he's piloted the men's program to three NCAA titles; two of the three came as he served as co-head coach with Guy Baker.
Krikorian graduated from UCLA with a psychology degree and a business administration emphasis in June 1997. In May 2001 Krikorian married Anicia Mendez, a four-year Bruin letter-winner in varsity tennis who completed her MBA at UCLA. Adam and Anicia reside in Manhattan Beach, CA, with their son, Jack (born July 2006) and daughter Annabel (born June 2009).
