"Thank you for your support," Serebrakian said to Kathleen Reeves, MD, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, and Gerald Sterling, PhD, Senior Associate Dean for Education, when the Olympic teams were announced. "This is truly one of the best moments of my life -- and I am happy to share it with my Temple family."

Arman has been the world's top-ranked Armenian alpine ski racer for the past seven years. During his undergraduate days at Colorado, he accrued four top-10 NCAA finishes.

A dual citizen, Arman plans on going into surgery.
