UCLA Represented at FINA World Water Polo Championships

July 20, 2009

ROME - Former UCLA women's water polo players Tanya Gandy, Jaime (Hipp) Komer and Kelly Rulon and former men's players Adam Wright (current UCLA men's head coach) and Justin Johnson are playing for the U.S. Senior National Teams this week in the 2009 FINA World Water Polo Championships.

Former UCLA women's water polo head coach and current men's associate head coach Adam Krikorian is in his first season as the USA Women's National Team Head Coach. Krikorian is being assisted this summer by former UCLA players Brandon Brooks (current UCLA women's head coach) and Coralie Simmons.

Matches featuring the U.S. men's and women's teams will be available either online video streaming or on television via Universal Sports (see schedule below).

The USA women's team opened its tournament with a 19-6 victory over Kazakhstan on Sunday, July 19. The women's team continues preliminary play against Russia on Tuesday (1:50 a.m., PT) and versus Greece on Thursday (10:40 a.m., PT).

The men's national team faces Italy on Monday at 12 p.m. (PT). The U.S. men's squad continues preliminary play against Macedonia on Wednesday (8 a.m., PT) and versus Romania on Friday (3:10 a.m., PT).

Following the conclusion of group play, Universal Sports will broadcast one game each day, likely the United States game on that particular day. Following, Universal will cover both semifinal matches and both medal matches.
