LOS ANGELES (January 17, 2017) – The Los Angeles Sports Council has named U.S. Olympic women’s water polo coach Adam Krikorian as its first-ever recipient of the “Extraordinary Achievement in Olympic Sport” Award. Krikorian will be honored during the 12th Annual LA Sports Awards on Monday, February 27 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

As head coach of the women’s national team during last summer’s Rio Games, for the second straight Olympics Krikorian coached Team USA to an undefeated record and the gold medal.

For his team’s dominating performance, he was named the USOC’s Coach of the Games for 2016.

Krikorian, who resides in Manhattan Beach, California, is a former water polo player and coach at UCLA. He was inducted last year into the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame in recognition of the 15 national championships won by his teams at UCLA: 11 as a head coach, three as an assistant coach and one as a player.
